• Facilitating knowledge translation. Bridging the gap between research and clinical practice.

A Passion for Physical Therapy

Thank you for visiting my website! I am grateful you attended, or watched, one of my courses. On this website I have a few options to find courses. I will be listing courses I am scheduled to give, and will maintain a list of my taped courses by Medbridge. In addition, you can see the various types of “Build Your Own Courses” I can provide your private facility.

My vision is to share my passion for taking the latest research available and translating that knowledge into realistic and practical treatment ideas for the clinic. I am also driven to assist therapists in increasing their confidence in challenging their clients to make the greatest improvements in outcome measures to allow them to go out and do what they love. This includes providing specific treatment ideas you can use tomorrow as well as simple to implement motor learning strategies.

My dream is to help BRIDGE the current gap between the literature and current clinical practice.

My logo represents the linkages between researchers, clinicians, students, and clients as we all work together to find the best way to MOVE the amazing people we work with back into activities that bring them joy!
