Personal Quote: “A healthy body is a gift that many people take for granted until they lose the ability to function properly. I am blessed to have the opportunity to assist people in restoring their function and helping them return to what they love doing in everyday life. I’m privileged to work with people at Mettler who share the same passion for helping others.”
