My clinical education during various rotations as a student was under several of the best clinicians in central Illinois, both in acute and outpatient settings of different specialties. Personally, I have gained respect for my great patient outcomes, assisted by my diverse abilities with use of manual therapy techniques, multi-disciplinary exercise knowledge, and motivational strategies. However, nothing replaces the relationships forged with previous patients, built on trust. My direct supervision of a patient's plan of care makes the difference versus the strategies used by larger PT companies, and my patients tell me this time and time again.
Though I have a strong athletic background in multiple sports, I enjoy working with all ages and ability levels.

Under my care at Revolution, I have seen my favorite people lose over 100 pounds, learn to walk again, and resume activities that once seemed impossible.
