She has worked exclusively in Parkinson’s for the last 4 years, starting at UCSF in research and then establishing her own concierge private practice called Positively Parkinson’s. In 2015, she recognized a need for community based high-intensity exercise classes and received a Parkinson’s Foundation community grant to fulfill that need.
