I have an undergraduate degree in Physiology, Biomechanics and Kinesiology from the University or Maine, Orono. I attended the Muscular Therapy Institute of Cambridge, MA and Myo-therapy Institute in Salt Lake City, UT Muscular Therapy. In 2001 I became a Certified Egoscue Exercise Therapist. 2020 I finished a year long program in Functional Medicine Coaching through Dr Chris Kresser. Worthy of mentioning that I have had an enormous amount of experience working with all different age groups from serious disabilities (ie MS, Parkinson’s, dementia), to professional athletes.
I have been practicing postural alignment therapy, educating, motivating and designing programs to help people understand how alignment is connected to degeneration and pain. This also goes for optimizing athletic patterns with any level athlete. As a result alignment is the foundation of the work I do with any age or ability.
My interest began after an accident left my father paraplegic. He suffered from what is known as phantom pain. This situation piqued my curiosity about causes and cures for chronic pain and illness. Being an athlete, I was interested in the science and psychology of health and what it took to function at a high level of performance. Hampshire College is where I first tested out these thoughts and self majored in the science and psychology of health. I later graduated at the top of my class from the University of Maine, Orono in physiology and kinesiology/bio-mechanics. In between Hampshire and Orono I won a spot on the US Olympic windsurfing team and competed nationally and internationally for 4 years.
After opening and running an Egoscue clinic in Marin county I went out on my own as an affiliate and now have a private practice in Sausalito, CA and the bay area where I do one on one Egoscue therapy, run group alignment classes and work with corporations and groups educating on the mechanics of posture and how to get rid of compensation and pain.
