Ann has been a practicing physical therapist since 1994 and a CHT since 2002. Since obtaining her manual therapy certification in 2003, Ann has utilized her background in differential diagnostics to create engaging clinical content for hand therapists to become more efficient clinicians. This is illustrated in the “Clinical Manual Assessment of the Wrist” published in the 2016 Special Edition on the Wrist in the Journal of Hand Therapy and Chapter 55: “Therapist Management of Compression Neuropathies of the Elbow” in the most recent edition of the Rehabilitation of the Hand.
Ann possesses a passion for learning and clinical teaching. She is the Clinical Development Coordinator at the Hand to Shoulder Center in Appleton, Wisconsin. She serves on the ASHT Awards Committee and enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge both through in-person courses and online.
