I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Physical Therapy from SUNY at Buffalo and my Masters of Science in Athletic Training and Sports Sciences from Long Island University, Brooklyn. After working in several settings in physical therapy, I found I truly enjoyed mentoring students in physical therapy.
I have taught in the NCC Physical Therapist Assistant Program for more than 25 years where I am Director of Clinical Education. In this role I coordinate the placement of each student in the program through their four unique clinical internships. In my role as an APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor, I teach clinicians how to mentor students .
I am a proud member of the American Physical Therapy Association. I was honored with the SUNY Chancellors Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2005.

I am the Course Coordinator for AHS 151 (Physical Therapist Assistant I) and AHS 152 (Physical Therapist Assistant II). In my role as Director of Clinical Education for the Physical Therapist Assistant Program, I coordinate the final two clinical courses in the program, AHS 157 and AHS 158. I also co-teach in AHS 154 and AHS 155.
My interests in Physical Therapy are varied. Through my teaching I maintain a strong interest in Pathology, Orthopedics/Musculoskeletal PT and Clinical Education.
