I am also a "Piston Science" graduate and can be found on Julie Wiebe's Find-A-Pro Site HERE.
After 15 years working in healthcare, I decided to build a practice that could dedicate time to each person and every aspect of their care. This includes women that have challenges getting to the clinic due to childcare issues or don't want to spend their limited time sitting in waiting rooms. As a mother of two young children, I understand the "Life Tetris" that is often involved in getting to appointments!
My eclectic approach to recovery includes exercise, nutrition, sleep, mindfulness, and general wellness. I am realistic in treatment planning and am well aware that we just can't do it all. At least not all at once. Sometimes that means breaking goals into manageable bites.
I am particularly passionate about delivering treatment programs that put you in the driver's seat and move beyond the restrictions imposed by insurance companies. I am committed to help you to build a strategy that allows YOU to take control of your health and your future!
On a personal note, I am married with two children and as a family we spend a lot of time together adventuring, working around the house, or just vegging on the couch for a Star Wars marathon. We have a classic 90's era Eurovan pop-top camper and love to spend our summers exploring new campgrounds. We all enjoy being outside and can generally be found doing garden or yard work in warmer weather and playing in the snow in the winter. Ever in support of the little guy, I enjoy site-roasted coffee from a french press and craft IPAs.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Physical Therapy (BMRPT) in 2004 and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2009. I have completed multiple continuing education courses in Pregnant and Post-partum Fitness, Pilates, and Women's Health. Throughout my career I have practiced in Canada, Northern Mariana Islands, Hawaii, California, and New York. In addition to clinical practice, I have been an adjunct faculty member at A. T. Still University since 2010. I specialize in Women's Wellness, Pilates, and Wound Care.
