I've spent my life learning, teaching and exploring, finding common themes and wisdom through variety. Growing up, training and competing with horses and dogs (German Shepherds) were the defining features of my life. Higher education and career development took the place of horses as I sought to develop excellence in a variety of clinical settings from outpatient to home health. I discovered my love for Physical Therapy as a Physical Therapist Assistant, continued on to earn a degree in Biology from Indiana University-Purdue University (IUPUI) in Indianapolis, IN and a Masters degree in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston, SC. I then moved to the Pacific Northwest and furthered my professional development by earning a clinical Doctorate (DPT), board certification in orthopedics and manual therapy certification through Evidence in Motion (EIM). My activities of choice include running marathons, ultramarathons, yoga, sailing, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking and training my dog Rin. The past three years has been focused on learning how to navigate the ins and outs as an instructor in both Physical Therapist Assistant and Doctor of Physical Therapy programs. Centaur rehab allows me to combine my passion for using my skills to help others move well and live well.
