I graduated from The University of Puget Sound in 2008 with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. I have been working in outpatient orthopedics since then. I received my Level II Certificate in manual therapy through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy in 2011, became certified as a Clinical Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in 2015, and in 2018 I graduated from the Connect Therapy Series through Dr. Linda Joy-Lee International.
My approach to therapy is to use a balanced combination of manual therapy to restore normal motion, then to retrain movement patterns through education and exercise to prevent further re-injury. I believe it is important to not only treat your symptoms, but to identify underlying biomechanical dysfunction that may be contributing to chronic and/or acute injuries. I work with each patient to develop therapy goals based on their needs. I have a special interest of working with youth athletes, and have extensive experience helping them heal from spinal fractures, only to be stronger athletes following recovery. I also specialize in treating patients following concussion, with training and experience administering the Buffalo Concussion Treadmill Test and progressing a safe return to activity program. My concussion skills also include oculomotor and vestibular assessment as well as whiplash care.
My personal interests include sailing, kayaking, rock climbing, and hiking. When I'm not out adventuring I enjoy spending time at home gardening and relaxing with my husband, two kids, and our labradoodle, Oscar.
Specialities: Concussion rehabilitation, athletic spinal fractures, general orthopedics and sports injuries.
