About Me
My BackgroundCourses I TeachMy Interests


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.
