Research Interests

I am a first year PhD student working as a research assistant in the Musculoskeletal Sonography and Occupational Performance Laboratory under the mentorship of Dr. Shawn Roll. Before beginning my PhD program I worked in hand therapy for 8 years, achieving the title of Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) in 2017. Over my years as a clinician I became increasingly interested in the research that informs how we approach treatment of people with diverse abilities and backgrounds. Continuing research in our field is critical to improve our standard of care, especially with the growing emphasis on treatment efficiency and individualized care.
