I have been a physical therapist in the Bellevue/ Issaquah area since 1998. I’m a native of Yakima. I earned my MSPT degree from Pacific University in Oregon in 1998. Prior to that, I received my B.S. in Zoology from the UW, where I rowed on the crew team for four year, earning varsity letters and competing for the national championship in 1992 and 1993.
I am a certified Manual Physical Therapist through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (2003), and I have been a certified ASTYM provider since 2004. Other areas of my clinical expertise include spine care, orthopedic pre and post operative care, vestibular rehabilitation, and custom orthotics.
I have been so lucky to work in very positive, patient centric environments throughout my career, and Balance Physical Therapy is no exception.
I am wholeheartedly passionate about movement, exercise, fitness, wellness, and sports. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to apply these passions to patient care.
My personal life revolves around my two older teenagers and their schooling and sports. My amazing partner Mike and I stay active with skiing, rowing, hiking, cycling, camping, and enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
