I have been a member of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s rehabilitation team since 2003, and currently serve as the Director of the department. My specialty is in addressing the functional needs of our patients with all types of cancer, specifically addressing the acute and late effects of cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. I am highly skilled at providing therapeutic interventions primarily aimed at improving mobility of the radiated skin and scar tissue, and at reeducating muscles and nerves damaged by treatment. I am an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association’s Oncology and Health Policy Administration sections. I speak nationally on topics related to cancer rehabilitation and contribute to publications in this field. My commitment to improving access to rehabilitation services for patients with cancer led me to pursue an MBA degree in healthcare management in 2009 and a clinical doctorate of physical therapy from Temple University in December 2013. I graduated from Ithaca College’s physical therapy program in 1993.
