My approach as a physical therapist is to always place the patient first and allow them to be a part of their plan of care. My goal for every patient is make them as comfortable as possible and feel confident in the treatment plan we create together. I place a significant emphasis on communication and feedback so patients can openly express their needs and goals to ensure we are achieving those goals. My experience in many different settings as a physical therapist has prepared me to create these values and goals for patients.
I was born and raised in the Midwest with most of my life spent in Wisconsin. I moved to Colorado in 2016 and have been practicing here ever since. I am an avid Chicago sports fan, despite growing up in Wisconsin! I enjoy lifting weights, hiking, photography and cheering on my husband and father-in-law as they participate in demolition derbies.
