Profile

Sheila believes the best way to approach rehabilitation is with information and spends time educating her patients on their diagnosis and the expected rehabilitation process. She believes in a team effort and sees herself as a “coach”, working along with her patient to achieve the best outcomes for returning to a fully functional life and self management.

Sheila has worked in a variety of physical therapy settings including acute hospital care, home care,as well as out-patient clinics. Her focus has been orthopedics but has also included neurological rehabilitation for stroke patients and women’s health care. Sheila has been very fortunate to have opportunities to work with international organizations providing physical therapy services in both Haiti and Honduras.

Outside of work, Sheila loves spending most of her free time in the great outdoors. Her favorite activities include cycling, golf, skiing, hiking, sea kayaking, and most of all YOGA!
