I am a passionate physical therapist and wellness/fitness specialist in Portland, OR specializing in reducing pain, increasing strength, restoring mobility and balance, and optimizing performance. I've worked with clients across the lifespan from those who have never exercised a day in their lives, to those who are afraid to exercise because of pain, to advanced athletes looking to take their performance to the next level.

Orthopedic and Spine Pain: As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist, and a Certified McKenzie practitioner, I can help you not only take control of your pain, but understand the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Manual therapy: I have received extensive training in a variety of manual therapies such as joint mobilization and manipulation, sports massage, tool-assisted soft tissue work, myofascial release, and kinesio taping.
Fitness Training: With a Bachelors in Exercise Science, a Bachelors in Athletic Training, and a Certification in Strength and Conditioning, I can help you design a sustainable exercise program specific to your body's needs with consideration for previous and current injuries or limitations.
Sports Performance and Injury Prevention: During a comprehensive evaluation, we will determine what might be limiting your athletic performance and putting you at risk of injury. Common impairments include movement pattern dysfunctions, strength deficits, mobility restrictions, decreased power output, and symptoms of overtraining.
When I'm not busy treating patients, I'm busy co-founding this very company, MovementX! I'm passionate about developing a community of diverse leaders who can come together and make systemic change in our health care system, while providing you the absolute best care possible!
I spent 10 years as a competitive gymnast until ending my career with a broken ankle at the end of my level 9 season. Still in love with the sport, I went on to coach throughout college, taking one young gymnast to the California State Champion title. I have a passion for helping young athletes decrease the incidence of injury, prolong the longevity of their careers, and address movement impairments to aid in optimal athletic performance. I have a unique and personalized skill set that comes with being a competitive gymnast, a coach, an athletic trainer, and a doctor of physical therapy.
Really fun fact: I can light a match with my toes and am allergic to bananas!
