Why do you enjoy teaching at SBU?

My primary reason for teaching at SBU is the fact that it is a Christian University. I want to help young men and women to become Christian Physical Therapists.

Educational and Professional Background

I received my BS degree as a general PT at Oklahoma University in 1975. I received my Master's degree in PT with an emphasis in orthopedic PT at Emory University in 1989. I received my PhD in Educational Studies from Biola University in 2001. I have over 30 years of experience in PT and over 10 years in teaching physical therapy.

My heart is to help students find out who they are in Christ and to help them find God's purpose and calling for their life.
