Current Role Working With The Athletic Population
I recently completed a year long physical therapy sports residency with the Mayo Clinic, which allowed me to continue treating patients, covering 300+ hours of athletic events, completing didactics, and presenting at conferences.
I now work full time in Woodbury, MN at TRIA Orthopedics where I work with high school, college,
semi-professional, and weekend warrior athletes dealing with acute,
chronic, and post-surgical conditions helping them to return to their
My personal passion centers around surgical and non-surgical conditions of the lower extremity.
I approach treatment in a patient
centered manner, grounding it in research, and objective measurements of
performance to ensure highest confidence when returning to sport.
Through treatment I aim to increase
patient resilience, and autonomy with the ultimate goal of returning
patients back to their desired activity with a robustness to continue
performing at their highest level.
I grew up playing sports my whole life,
but always enjoyed basketball the most. I played all 4 years of high
school, and then In college decided I wanted to just play for fun. I
then began to develop a love
for weight lifting, and working in training room helping with
rehabilitation, and I've been doing those 2 ever since. I also still
play pick up basketball on the side for a little bit of cardio.
