Capitol PT was born out of a desire to do things differently. Having practiced in another state, I knew things in Wisconsin could be done better, and that the people here deserved more. I opened the doors in 2004 as a one-(wo)man-show. Over the years, our staff and services have continued to grow and thrive.

The desire to grow our service areas came from different life experiences. Having grown up an athlete, orthopedics as the base was a no-brainer. A closeness to my grandparents and the opportunity to develop a major local seniors-based therapy department from the ground up were catalysts to building our seniors division. Having children spurred the expansion of our women’s health and pelvic health areas. Most recently, my personal experience with breast cancer was the source and meaning behind the growth of our oncology division. Life experiences, although not always easy, have shaped the way I lead others, expand our services areas, and make a difference in others’ lives. There’s a silver lining in everything if we’re open to seeing it.

A life-long learner, I have always pursued further education, including earning advanced board certifications in both orthopedics and women’s health and then achieving my Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. My two greatest accomplishments to date include being awarded Wisconsin Physical Therapy Association’s Private Practice of the Year in 2016, and one of InBusiness Magazine’s Women of Industry award recipients in 2017. Our team works extremely hard at serving others, and I am grateful for the opportunity to lead them.

Outside of work, I love water skiing, weight lifting, entertaining, and spending time with my husband, and two boys.
