“Engagement, enthusiasm and relevance” best describe my teaching philosophy. I believe students learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process and have an enjoyable learning environment.  I love to engage students in my courses by using diverse teaching methods and, encouraging their use of a variety of cognitive skills. I am always looking for those ‘light switches to turn on’ when students can apply and synthesize the information into their own lives.  As an educator, I want to inspire students to learn about Anatomy Trains and the neuro-myofascial system and apply it to their own practices. Students are more motivated to learn when they see how the material can be used to understand something about themselves and their clients.
