BIOGRAPHY

I am an Assistant Professor in the Occupational Therapy Program in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. I completed my B.S. in Biology at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville and my Master’s and Doctoral degrees from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. After focusing my doctoral work on the use of f-MRI to examine individuals with idiopathic focal hand dystonia, I continued on to the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO and completed a postdoctoral experience in the Program in Physical Therapy and the Movement Disorders section of the Department of Neurology. My current focus is on the use of collaborative and community-based research methods aimed at positively impacting meaningful health outcomes for older adults, especially those with Parkinson disease, who have limited access to effective forms of physical activity.
