I graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of North Florida in 2012 before moving to the beautiful state of Washington that Summer. I have been working in outpatient orthopedic clinics ever since and continue to grow as a practitioner. I have received additional training through the Herman and Wallace Institute for treatment of women’s health issues including pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and incontinence. I completed visceral mobilization of the urinary system and plan to further my education within this specialty.
The most exciting change to my practice was in 2017 when I graduated from the Dr. Linda-Joy Lee ConnectTherapy™ series in Vancouver BC. This treatment model utilizes a holistic framework when assessing and treating a person. It considers the connections between the different regions and systems of the body, as well as the social and psychological influences that impact our experience of our body and movement patterns.
I believe treatments should be patient-centered, using a blend of manual therapy and functional movement training. I have extensive training through STOTT Pilates and enjoy incorporating this knowledge with the appropriate patients. I am interested in the patient’s goals and will tailor our sessions to facilitate those goals.
My interests outside of helping patients achieve their goals include traveling, hiking, running, snowboarding, and cooking. I also have a background in dance and swimming.
