I became a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2012, practiced in a large hospital system for 3 years prior to moving to Haiti where I treated a handful of fellow expats and local people who had various orthopedic and neurological issues.
My experiences in many different medical settings and specialties (cardiac/telemetry, surgery, ICU, oncology, pulmonary/lung disease, outpatient neurology & orthopedics as well as the day to day running a medical clinic in a developing country) have led me to see the body as a holistic unit. We are meant to be integrated beings - putting nutritious things in our body, life-giving thoughts into our mind and soul, and engaging in physical activity that is kind to our bodies rather than for the purpose of a specific look.
I personally love practicing yoga, cycling, participating in strength classes, walking/hiking/running, guiding others in their fitness journeys, eating clean, practicing meditation, living out my faith journey, and learning every step of the way.
I also love teaching and had the opportunity to teach several intensive courses at the best therapy school in Haiti, FSRL. Contributing to raising up a generation of Haitian Physical and Occupational Therapists is one of the best ways I can promote Therapy in Haiti and empower these brilliant and compassionate students. I plan to return to Haiti at least annually to learn with these friends. Consider supporting FSRL!
