Department of Physical Therapy/School of Health Professions

UT Medical Branch at Galveston

My professional interest and expertise is in pediatric physical therapy, and I like nothing more than to facilitate a desire in others to pursue this area of practice.

My goal in the classroom is to instill a desire among our students to evaluate and treat children with disabilities. Not all will choose to work with these clients, but I have succeeded if they simply feel more confident working with them. My goal as a facilitator in my post-professional online courses is to direct these experienced physical therapists to resources that can enhance their knowledge and interactions with children with disabilities and their families.
