When I was 15 I knew what I wanted to do: be a coach, a scientist, a teacher and a nurturer.
I feel extremely fortunate that I get to fulfill each of those roles through my career. I got my Bachelor’s in Biology in my hometown of Colorado Springs and my Master’s in Physical Therapy at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver in 1992.
Because I am loose jointed and very active, I’ve torn multiple ligaments, cartilages and broken many bones, having my first Orthopedic consultation at age 10. My passion for our practice stems from being pain-free most of the time despite a serious back injury (11 mm spondylolithesis from doing Yoga and yard work in 2010) and an arthritic hip and knee (cycling is my medicine!).
