I took a specialization course at Drexel University in 2014 for Rehabilitation of the Hand and Upper body. I have advanced training in making custom splints for the hand and upper body.
I moved to Taos a little over a year ago with my partner and our young son. I really enjoy hiking and baking in my free time and I hope to try skiing, rafting and mountain biking in the upcoming year.
