Specialties / Areas of Interest

My areas of interest are geriatrics, orthopedics, vestibular rehabilitation, and biomechanical bike fitting. I teach a strength and balance fitness class for adults aged 65 and over called “Stay Active & Independent for Life”. I also teach total hip and total knee replacement pre-operative classes to educate and train patients about the surgery and post-operative recovery. My goal, especially for my elderly patients, is to restore their independence and safety at home and in the community as fully as possible.

Troy and I became owners of ProFormance Physical Therapy in 2005.

Specialties / Areas of Interest

I have a special interest in the evaluation and treatement of orthopedic spinal conditions. It is my goal that each patient I see understands his/her spinal condition, learns safe movement habits, and implements a proper exercise regimen to maximize function and comfort.

I look forward to working with you so that together we can improve your spinal health.

2007 – Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Northern Arizona University


I was born and raised in Clarkston and graduated from Washington State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree. I went on to obtain a Doctorate of Physical Therapy Degree from Northern Arizona University.

Specialties / Areas of Interest

In treating patients of the Palouse since 2007, my experience has primarily focused on general outpatient orthopedics with an emphasis in manual and functional techniques to restore function. I especially enjoy working with patients suffering from extremity dysfunctions. I also have a background in geriatric rehabilitation in the skilled nursing setting.

During my time at ProFormance Physical Therapy, I have obtained Kinesio Taping and Graston Technique certifications to more effectively treat my patients. I am one of the few local physical therapists able to cast for custom orthotics. I feel it is important that each patient takes an active role in his/her rehabilitation. Together we can reach your goals one step at a time.
