My Background and Journey

My journey started when I was 8 years old.  That is when I experienced the passion of playing basketball.  I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and played on one of the top NYC high school basketball programs at Lincoln high school.  Basketball and playing for Lincoln allowed me to see benefits of passion, hard work and dedication.  Through that experience I have transformed my passion, dedication and hard work in helping others like all of my clients to improve their health as well as to help other practitioners to learn my concepts to help the practitioners open new opportunities, grow their practices and help their clients to improve their health.

I have owned a health practice for the last 16 years. I have studied from some of the top practitioners in the health field. I obtained my Masters in Exercise Science from The University of California at Pennsylvania. The focus of our program was Corrective Exercise for Rehabilitation. We focused our study on the segmental functional exercise system. Our program was written by NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) the CEO, at the time, was by Dr. Michael Clark. I did a 2-year program in Toronto Canada in Manual Osteopathy from Guy Voyer, Osteopath. In this program, I learned a greater detail of the segmental functional exercise system as well as greater understanding and application of manual therapy. I followed with a mentorship with Dr. Keith Pyne who has been a Chiropractor and manual therapist for over 26 years. Dr. Pyne is one of the most sought after manual therapists especially in professional sports. He has worked with over 1,100 professional athletes and is the head of the Health Advisory Board for the Washington Nationals. While, I felt I had a good understanding of musculo-skeletal injuries, rehab, and manual therapy, my passion was to get into the health field to find new ways to help people to improve their health. I felt with the current population of people I was seeing at the time I could help them more efficiently. There was also a whole new population of people that I felt I can help like people who suffer from Concussions, Balance Disorders, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Strokes, Parkinson, Kids with ADHD, Kids with Learning Disabilities, and Kids with Special Needs. As I saw this whole new population that can be helped, over the last 10 years I have increased my knowledge base with taking a 4-year program with a Doctor in Neuroscience and Nutrition. I also extensively studied the works of Neurologists Dr. Leigh and Dr. Zee. They have put out a gold standard book called Neurology of Eye Movements. I have also studied Neurologist Dr. Hal Blumenfeld as well as Physical Therapist Susan Herdman. My goal is to constantly be learning, researching and applying new creative ideas and concepts to help improve people’s health. My goal is to share my knowledge and concepts with other practitioners.
