My Background

I was born and raised in North Jersey, where I played recreational soccer for my local town club. After high school, I moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University. I majored in Exercise Science, and minored in Healthcare Management and Spanish. I graduated with honors, and completed a thesis on traumatic brain injuries (concussion) in soccer.

I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Duke University. During my time at Duke, I have led multiple projects and student groups within sports medicine.

I have had the pleasure to obtain experience in many environments, including with North Carolina FC, El Paso Surf, and Duke Club Sports.
