Hello everyone. I am the latest addition to the Activcore team. I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) specializing in orthopedic conditions with a special interest in soccer. I work at Activcore in Atlanta, Georgia, located just 2 miles from Emory University. I also work at Activcore in Johns Creek, GA located inside the Medical Fitness and Wellness Group.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia in 2018 and my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Emory University’s School of Medicine in 2021. While at Emory, I was also trained in Advanced Extremities, Nutrition in Physical Therapy, and Dry Needling Levels 1 and 2.
I grew up in Roswell, Georgia playing competitive soccer from a young age. I had many injuries throughout my career, and after tearing my ACL, I participated in eight months of physical therapy. It was during my recovery that I decided that physical therapy was the career for me. I fell in love with the impact the mind-body relationship has on a person’s quality of life and decided to pursue a career to help others heal from injury.
I provide a holistic approach to physical therapy that applies bio-psycho-social components for an individualized, tailored experience. Typically my treatment methods include a combination of skilled manual therapy, cupping, dry needling, soft tissue mobilization, Redcord suspension exercise and strength training in order for my patients to gain optimal mobility and function. I especially enjoy working with active, athletic populations.
I am also certified in dry needling. Dry needling is an advanced form of manual therapy that involves the insertion of needles into tender points in the body without the injection of any substance. The needle is used to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
I choose to work at Activcore because I believe patients deserve one-on-one holistic care that is uniquely tailored to their individual needs. When not at Activcore, I enjoy spending time on the Beltline, playing recreational soccer, being on the lake, and spending time with friends and family.
