Being an athlete my whole life I have undergone my fair share of injuries. Understanding the frustration injuries can have on day to day life I have a sincere desire to help anyone overcome their own physical ailments. After graduating from LSU with a Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology, I began working in multiple rehab and fitness settings. Realizing how little was truly being done to help people "function" better I decided to dedicate my studies on how to help people overcome chronic pain by improving their overall function. Since then I have gained multiple certification and worked with a variety of conditions ranging from stroke victims, Parkinson's disease clients, and Traumatic Brain injuries which presented a variety of conditions, including the reduced use of knee, back, elbow, ankle, shoulder, and neck pain. I have also been able to work with numerous athletes. I have not only had success returning them from injury to health, but also improve their performance past traditional techniques.
