I am originally from Greenbush, Minnesota, which is a rural town in the north west corner of the state. I found a passion for physical therapy due to a handful of injuries during my high school sports career in volleyball, basketball, softball, and golf that introduced me to two very passionate physical therapists and athletic trainers. My personal goal in life is to better the lives of those around me, which I have been able to do as a lifeguard, certified nursing assistant, restorative therapy aide, athletic trainer, and now physical therapist. I really enjoy sports medicine, pediatrics, and general outpatient due to my experience working with sports teams during my time in athletic training and physical therapy schooling as well as my time spent in schools as a paraprofessional. I also enjoy hiking, swimming, golfing, and taking my dog Diesel everywhere I can around my new home in Snohomish, Washington.
