My true passion was born when I specialized in obstetrics in 2013 at Brooks Rehabilitation in Jacksonville, FL. Since then, I have continued my specialty training with Lynn Schulte from Institute of Birth Healing, Herman and Wallace, the American Physical Therapy Association, and Isa Herrera of Pelvic Pain Relief. Combining the expertise of Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy with Obstetrics has brought our clinical practice to the next level. My heart behind Painless Pregnancy is that every woman has the opportunity to be given holistic and conservative care to the highest degree.
