Background:
“I am a Portland native, and I discovered the field of physical therapy after becoming a patient myself when I suffered an injury to my elbow. Since then, I have dedicated my career to helping others regain their optimal function and activity level, whether it’s for a job, sports or hobbies. I love to maintain an active lifestyle and enjoy activities such as skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and camping.”

Education:
“I earned my BS in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon and shortly thereafter received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona. I spent my early career working for an outpatient physical therapy clinic that specialized in sports rehabilitation and aquatics. I specialize in functional manual therapy and have taken several advanced training classes to further my knowledge and techniques in order to facilitate a positive change in the way my patients move and are able to function in their environment. I am currently working toward attaining my Certified Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT) certification through the Institute of Physical Art”
