I have a passion for connecting with my patients in order to help them return to activities that they love. I have an extensive and eclectic mix of training on manual therapy techniques, neuromuscular and orthopedic rehabilitation. I discovered my love for Women’s Pelvic Health Rehabilitation during one of my clinical internships and later through mentorship and numerous courses through the American Physical Therapy Association, Herman and Wallace, Inc and Bookhout Seminars. It has become a passion of mine to be able to help numerous patients though very personal and challenging dysfunctions and I strive to help empower women through education, self care techniques, manual therapy treatment and appropriate movement based exercise/activities. I believe in the power of creating a support network and actively work to become a part of my patient’s care team. I also believe in the importance of promoting pelvic physical therapy as a conservative treatment option for Women and speak with various providers including the Minnesota Birth Center, The University of Minnesota–Family Medicine Residency Program and more.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and my dog Ellie. Although I am originally from Wisconsin, she is an avid Minnesota sports fan, with the exception of my love for the Wisconsin Badgers. I love to travel, spend time with family and friends as well as be physically active including hiking and CrossFit style fitness.
