Let's do this together!

I have been a physical therapist for ten years now with experiences in hospital and rehabilitation facility.  I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Santo Tomas and completed my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions back in 2014.  With much hard work and grace from above, I was able to complete a Geriatric Training Certification program through Great Seminars founded by Carole Lewis and Geriatric Certified Specialist through the APTA.  I am currently incorporating Movement System Impairments into my outpatient practice to help improve function among my patients.

 

It is a great privilege for me to be part of this wonderful rehab team at AAA Physical Therapy where I can be the best I can be as a physical therapist for the betterment of my patients.  I hope to be able to work with you in achieving your goals to enhance your mobility and function whether it be for work, leisure or sports!
