Helping people live their best lives is at the heart of everything that I do.  Over the years in my career as a physical therapist, I have observed that physical, mental, and emotional health are intricately connected.  I love physical therapy because helping people improve physical health often improves all other areas of their life.  With each patient I treat, it is my goal to make a positive change in the first visit.  I want to enable you to be an active agent in your own healing process, and I feel so much satisfaction in providing the means for patients to be highly involved in their own treatment process. 

Education has always been a foundational part of my practice.  I attended Creighton University Physical Therapy school and graduated in 2008 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy, and I became Board Certified in Orthopedics in 2012. I love learning, and work diligently to keep up to date with the current evidence. While working in California, I had the opportunity to teach in a college setting and always learn best by teaching.  I enjoy having students and collaborating with them as they prepare to become physical therapists. I am certified in Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment (McKenzie), which is a great tool to help me more quickly assess and treat disorders of the lumbar and cervical spine. I also enjoy utilizing dry needling because of the rapid improvement it produces in patients.

In my free time, I love running and hiking in our beautiful mountains. As a runner myself, helping runners become stronger, more efficient, and injury free is one of my favorite aspects of being a physical therapist.
