Growing up on a ranch in Eastern Montana has given me love for the outdoors. I spent most of my childhood years horseback riding and working cattle with my family. I learned what hard work, honesty, and dedication were at a very young age. After I tore my ACL in a horseback riding accident, I underwent surgery and recovered with physical therapy. This was by no means easy and took a lot of dedication. At this point, I knew that I wanted to help other people going through similar conditions as I had.
I attended University of Mary in Bismarck and received my doctorate of physical therapy in 2007. I then moved to Bozeman, MT and practiced there for 3 years before moving back to ND to be closer to family. I have now been practicing physical therapy for more than 10 years and appreciating every moment. I enjoy the ability to educate patients and help them rehab to enjoy daily activities and way of life again. My special interests include lymphedema, post breast care, men and women’s health, as well as pregnancy and postpartum conditions.
You can find me with my family spending most of our time outdoors during the summer months. We love to go to the lake for fishing, camping, and boating. My husband and I also believe in staying healthy and active which we have instilled in our two young daughters. I have completed a couple ½ marathons and enjoy going for evening walks with my family. I also enjoy gardening, canning, helping my family on the ranch, horseback riding, and most of all spending time with my two children who have taught me a lot about life in the past 3 years!
