During my tenure at NYU Health Center, I developed screening and injury prevention programs for New York University's Dance Department and developed and managed a chronic pain practice. I cared for NYU students after orthopedic surgeries such as Anterior Cruciate Ligament, rotator cuff, labral tears, etc. I also provided Physical Therapy backstage for Broadway dancers and actors.
