She developed a condition in her ankle called Osteochondritis Dissecans where she underwent 2 ankle surgeries, followed by physical therapy.

Her goal is to further develop this knowledge and pursue certification in vestibular therapy.
Her treatment philosophy is to personally connect with her patients in a friendly and positive setting.
