    • Board Certified in Orthopedics (OCS)
    • Manual Therapy certified (MTC)

    I became a member of the medical team for the United States Diving Team in 1992. I had the challenge of working with the athlete’s injuries and as a member of the Performance Enhancement Team (PET) for the divers which was established to keep these athletes healthy while correcting movement impairments and advancing their training performance. I decided to step down to focus on my practice at Fitness Together on trying to correct movement imbalances and provide exceptional training in efforts to keep people well. Fitness Together was a game changer because I could focus on one on one evaluation and treatment. Evaluations are performed for injuries, postural analysis, body and balance symmetry, wellness, prevention and also for custom orthotics. The goals are to perform activities with the best quality while also allowing the body to develop or be maintained in order to either excel or to age gracefully. This has been the most rewarding position, seeing results because it is all hands-on treatment and training.

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time I love to spend time taking photo's of the beautiful scenery of Southwest Florida. It also gives me a fun excuse to travel. I am a die hard New England sports fan.

My focus areas are in functional movement patterns, balance, and core strength/stability. Fitness Together can change your life.
