I graduated in 1992 with a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from Washington University in St Louis, MO. The majority of my career has been spent in Home Healthcare, with short stents in skilled rehab and outpatient clinic settings. My passion is to assist people in maintaining their independence, especially when it might mean the difference in their ability to remain in their home.
I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Masters degree in Speech/Language/Dysphagia Therapy. I have spent most of my career treating patients in the skilled nursing facility environment. Of all the speech therapy areas we treat, I enjoy working with people that have difficulty eating, chewing and swallowing after illness or disease.
I graduated in 2010 from Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Studies and in 2012 with a Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from St. Louis University. I have practiced as an OT in skilled nursing rehab centers, home health, and outpatient. I enjoy addressing my patient’s deficits and encouraging them to pursue what is meaningful to them.
About Adaptive Equipment Corner
Both working in the field of therapy, Christina and I started Adaptive Equipment Corner in 2015. In our line of work, we see individuals everyday struggling to continue to care for themselves and remain in/or return to their homes. Many times, it is as simple as having the right tools to achieve this goal. There is a multitude of adaptive equipment available today for just about any need. This can often be overwhelming. Our goal is to be that simple resource for individuals to see what might be available, to see how use various pieces of equipment, to ask questions and to locate resources in order to get the equipment they might need.
