I have been a practicing physical therapist since 1994. I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient, home health, skilled nursing facilities, inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and acute care. In 1999, I opened a new outpatient therapy clinic in Harrisburg, PA which averaged 10 therapists providing PT, OT and ST services. The clinic was in operation for 13 years. In addition to the outpatient clinic, in 2001 I established a non-profit foundation and opened the first private residential group home for young adults with traumatic brain injury in central Pennsylvania. I then worked as a traveler PT for many years gaining much experience in different settings and learning numerous documentation operational systems.
I have a CHHi-RP certification for compliance training (Certified Harmony Healthcare International Rehab Professional) obtained in May 2019. I am a member of the APTA and PPS section. I attend PPS conferences, CMS and Ascend conferences to maintain up-to-date information on Medicare/Insurance compliance, billing and documentation changes.
