Personal Information

As a teenager, I tore my ACL and meniscus after a downhill skiing accident and spent many months in physical therapy. For several years after college, I traveled around the world with the Missoula Children’s Theatre performing in and directing plays. When I decided to trade in the life of a wandering performer, I remembered the surprisingly enjoyable experience I had as a PT patient and decided to make it my career. I am an avid cyclist, often commuting to work by bike and going on long weekend rides; I have ridden the Seattle-to-Portland charity ride multiple times as both a participant and volunteer support rider. I also enjoy group exercise classes, yoga, eating at the amazing restaurants in Seattle, going to Sounders games with my husband, and lavishing affection on my two cats.

Philosophy of Care

My background as an educator informs my philosophy towards patients. I believe when people know why they should be moving in a certain way they are more likely to benefit from therapy and feel empowered to continue to improve outside of the clinic. I want my patients to feel they can find a way to make healthy movement a regular and rewarding part of their lives.
