disorders, with primary focus areas of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and

that can improve brain health. She works to improve quality of life by

sensory changes or pain, spasticity or muscle spasms, cognitive and mood
changes, bladder or bowel dysfunction, and balance problems in a
multidisciplinary fashion with PT, OT, specialists in Ophthalmology,

their lives. She strongly believes in listening first to understand problems
