Why I am a Physical/Occupational Therapist: I became a Physical therapist because I believe everyone has potential and I enjoy helping people reach that potential. I have also appreciated the added bonus of the opportunity to develop relationships with my patients as their therapist.
Continuing Education Commitment: One of the truly great things about the Physical Therapy profession is the never ending growth of knowledge. I have seen significant changes in the past 37 years and have had the opportunity to spend several thousand hours learning from some of the best in our profession to enhance my skills to the benefit of my patients. Some of those skills include manual therapy, functional training, and vestibular rehabilitation. I have a firm belief that you never stop learning.
Personal Interests: In my spare time, now that my four daughters are grown, I enjoy sailing, fly fishing, hiking, gardening, rowing and spending time with my grandchildren and grown children.
Educational Background: Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Montana (Go Griz) in Athletic Training and pre-Physical Therapy and a Certificate in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University, 1976
