Hi! I am thrilled to be joining the OSR team and everything has been going great since starting at the Chanhassen location on Dec 1st! I recently relocated to Minnesota from Oregon, where I had been practicing in the outpatient setting for 3 years. I am a hands on therapist and my goals are your goals.
I grew up in the small town of Mora, MN and I just always knew I was going to be a PT. My mom works in the field, so I was exposed to the profession at a young age. After going through PT myself, for various athletic injuries in high school, I was sure that was the course I would take.
I attended the University of Minnesota and graduated in 2004 with a BS in kinesiology. I then moved to Florida to attend the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences where I graduated with my doctorate in physical therapy. For no reason other than the desire to explore, my husband and I then decided to move to Oregon, which is where officially started my career.
3 Random facts:
1. My husband is also a PT.
2. I have a giant dog named Winston. He’s a St. Bernard German Short Hair pointer mix and I love him!
3. I’ve completed 3 Ironman triathlons and I have high aspirations of qualifying for the World Championship in Kailua-Kona someday.
