“Atmycore isa loveofpeople thathasgrownfromyearsof giving service. I don’t believe

that true happiness comes just from within oneself but from self-transcendence, from helping other people. We have all experienced pain or discomfort at one time and been unable to participate in things that we really wishwe could have. Some of my strengths as a therapist come from my sense of humor, my ability to empathize, connect and communicate in a way that’s easy to understand.Myapproachtotreatmentandpatientsuccess is multi-factorial, making sure to compassionately and collaboratively treat the whole patient, not just the injury. Iamanavidreaderfrommyyearsasanassistant librarian and continue to learn and grow as a clinician through personal study and continuing education so that I am able to provide the best care possible, always backed by scientific evidence. Yeah Science!” DPT: George Fox University, Newberg, OR BS: Exercise and Sport Science, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT
