About Me

As a nurse practitioner working in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, I focus on helping patients improve their quality of life. Our patients have various functional impairments, often due to stroke, injury or other disabling conditions. Helping them overcome their current deficits is both challenging and rewarding. I am constantly impressed by how strong and resilient our patients and their families can be when faced with traumatic events.

I am fortunate and proud to work with an outstanding multidisciplinary team. Our physicians, therapists and entire staff are committed to helping our patients through any means possible. By combining teaching, research and clinical care, we promote and provide the highest level of health care possible.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy connecting with my community by participating in a neighborhood book club, yoga and other community events.

    Susan is amazing. She spends as much time with me as I have questions, whether they are about Botox I'm getting or any other issues. I wish every doctor could be as caring and thorough as she is.

    She was great! She greeted me when she walked in and spent time going through all my questions/symptoms. She was very thorough and had a refreshing energy for my injury.
