PT | IRG Physical & Hand Therapy - Highlands

I strive to provide my patients with a holistic approach to treating their injuries, through education, various modalities, and offering a range of resources I feel could help them.

I grew up in South Africa and love the diversity of its cultures. I enjoy cooking, travelling and exploring my surroundings, and spending time with my loved ones.  Living in a third-world country taught me to be creative with my treatment approaches and all to be mindful of family dynamics as well as social impacts involved with patient-care. I relocated to the Kansas in 2013 with my husband, and then to the PNW in 2018. I am enjoying the more temperate weather of the Pacific Northwest.
