Emeritus Professor, Physical Therapy
Specialty: Anatomy & Neuroanatomy

After 28 years at Ithaca College, I retired from full-time teaching in May 2018.

(The IC phone and office listing above are no longer valid, but I still receive email. You should add 10 pounds and about 15 years to the look of the picture if you want to recognize me.)

I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in 1975, my Doctoral Degree in Anatomy (with research emphasis in Neuroanatomy) from the SUNY Upstate Medical University in 1989 working with Dennis Stelzner, and completed  two years of postdoctoral research at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, working with Michael Goldberger. I have clinical experience in several general practice settings and an academic background emphasis in the basic sciences of Anatomy and Neuroanatomy.

I started teaching at Ithaca College in1990. My recent teaching responsibilities included being the course coordinator for Clinical Neuroanatomy (PDPT-57000) and teaching Pathology for Physical Therapists (PTBS-51103). I have also been a lab instructor in several courses including: Musculoskeletal Examination and Evaluation, Electro Modalities and Physical Agents, Human Anatomy, Therapeutic Exercise, and Electrophysiological Examination and Evaluation.

My professional interests have involved several activities with the American Physical Therapy Association including: Treasurer of the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA), member of the NYPTA Finance Committee, delegate to the NYPTA Delegate Assembly and the American Physical Therapy Association House of Delegates, Chair of the NYPTA Southern Tier District. In April 2018, I was appointed to a four year term on the APTA Finance and Audit Committee.

From July 2014 through May 2018, I served as ICPT Department Chair.

On a personal note, I was a rower while an IC undergraduate student and enjoy maintaining contact with the IC Crew program by officiating at spring races.
