Personal profile

Research Interests

My clinical and academic interests are in the areas of neurorehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation. I have practiced in clinical and research settings at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) for over 15 years. My clinical work has included the development of knowledge translation tools for optimal use of outcome measures in neurorehabilitation and program development for Phase II and Phase III Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
