Owner, MSPT

My role as a Physical Therapist is simple. I guide and provide the tools patients need to get back to their functional lifestyles by educating the patient, engaging the patient in their individualized and progressive program, and preventing further injuries and problems in the future.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, learning to play hockey (Go Greenhorns!), camping/hiking, watching movies (with good character development) and reciting nerdy movie quotes.

 

Professional Interests:

  • As a tai chi instructor and practitioner, I enjoy integrating similar dynamic movement/balance patterns in my own therapy exercises.

  • I am also a trained classical violinist, and I am in a position to address the overuse and postural problems often incurred by musicians (that’s one of the reasons I got into this business).

  • After working with Everett Aquasox players and other repetitive throwing athletes in my nascent years, I continue to love working with shoulder injuries and sports biomechanics.

 

Education/Positions:

  • Masters in Physical Therapy from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. As a specialty, I studied neuromuscular imbalances in relation to functional movement patterns.

  • Consultant for injury prevention and diagnosis to Super Jock N Jill, EarthCorps, Seattle Parks and Rec, and other fine organizations in North Seattle
