My clinical background is primarily in rehabilitation and I worked in the Detroit Medical Center prior to coming to Oakland University. I have also worked in the acute care, outpatient and home care settings. Prior to becoming the director of the physical therapy program I was the academic coordinator of clinical education. I am an American Physical Therapy Association Credentialed Clinical trainer.
