Bio

Whether her patient is a college athlete or a retiree looking to keep up with their grandkids, Carly believes in treating the person as a whole. In addition to assessing how her patients move and function, she listens critically to how their current state of movement impacts their lives. To ensure her patients maintain their physical progress well beyond discharge, Carly utilizes a balanced blend of education and encouragement to ensure the patient’s plan of care is well-established.

While participating in club soccer, swimming, and running competitively as an active teenage athlete, Carly experienced her fair share of bumps and bruises. However, it was a majorly sidelining concussion that would set her on the path toward physical therapy. As a result of a severe lack of autonomy she experienced in the healthcare system, she made the decision to pursue a medical career. More than halfway into her college career, she was undecided about whether to choose osteopathic medicine or PT. After volunteering in the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital physical therapy department, she fell in love with physical therapy – particularly orthopedics.

After earning her doctorate, Carly rigorously pursued her passion for gaining orthopedic skills by completing several manual maitland courses over the course of two years. In 2013 she had the opportunity to join the Sports Physical Therapy Institute in Princeton where she was able to witness senior physical therapists work with the US Rowing Team. In addition to expanding her skill set and inspiring her to aspire to to more advanced skills, she had the extraordinary privilege to work with dancers from the American Repertory Ballet, LPGA, club rowers, and athletes from Princeton University.

Now that she has joined SOL, Carly is excited about gaining further training in ART, Graston and SFMA. As concussion in youth sports becomes a growing concern, Carly also plans to expand her knowledge and skills so that she can be a major force in helping with concussion prevention and rehabilitation.

Outside of SOL, Carly enjoys being active. She enjoys being outdoors, hiking, running, swimming, going to the beach, watching baseball, traveling, photography, and participating in watersports with her husband and son.
