As an avid endurance athlete, I became fascinated by the complexity and adaptability of the human body. I was drawn to physical therapy to be an expert on human movement and to assist patients of all functional levels in reaching their goals and improving their quality of life.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. From there, I went on to attend the University of Minnesota and received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
I take pride in the opportunity to empower those I work with to take their health into their own hands and get back to doing what they love. I am passionate about treating the whole person, and improving their quality of movement and function through an evidenced-based approach. I have a special interest in the treatment of pelvic disorders and spinal dysfunction. Additional clinical interests include chronic pain, geriatric conditions, and the management of athletes.
In my free time, I love to be out riding my bike or running. The Madison area provides endless country roads for me to ride on and I compete in running races ranging from one mile to marathon distance. I also enjoy hiking, camping, and cross-country skiing.
