Owner of Interim Healthcare of Prince George’s County (Upper)

"In my 30 years of physical therapy practice serving patients I can honestly say that working with seniors was one of the most fulfilling and rewarding.  As l look forward to my next phase in life I realized that I wanted to make a difference in the care of seniors.  There is a strong need for high quality support and services for the elderly and differently abled community. The care and support that is received during this time is so important because it helps to ensure each individual’s right to the best quality of life possible.  I feel that after so many years in the clinical setting it is time to pursue my passion to improve the lives of the senior population. 

I believe that I am drawn to the home health care field because of my strong desire to play a role in ensuring that seniors have the right to age in the familiarity of their home environment.  There is clear evidence that living in one’s home during the later stages of life results in greater feelings of comfort, safety, and happiness.  I am grateful to have the opportunity to put in place support and assistance to make this a reality for seniors and those adults who need assistance in our community.

I received a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Boston University.  In addition to general physical therapy treatments I also specialize in the treatment of oncology, lymphedema and pelvic health issues.  As an advocate for health and well-being, I have led many presentations, fitness programs and volunteer activities in our community.  

After an extensive search I found Interim Healthcare, a leading home health care franchise founded in 1966 with more than 300 independently owned and operated locations.  The core values of Interim Healthcare align with my own, and the support that comes from all levels of the franchise facilitates personal, quality service delivery. 
        “We Improve People’s Lives”

This is the mission statement of Interim Healthcare which parallels my lifelong dedication to the health and wellbeing of others as a physical therapist and now as the owner of Interim Healthcare of Prince George’s County. Prior to joining the Interim family, I was the owner of a rehabilitation practice in New Jersey and have worked over the past 20 years in Maryland in a variety of clinical and home care settings. It would be an honor to continue to help those in need live life to the fullest."
