This work continues to call out to me. As I’ve grown into a career as a physical therapist, I realize that I hold the gift of physical empathy: where I can tune into the physical impairments of person and can sometimes physically feel this within myself to understand exactly how to heal that person. From this, I can firmly say, I see these same abilities in you.
My educational background includes 2 graduate degrees: a Master of Science in Neuroscience (MSc), and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT). I am well versed in both neuroscience, developmental research, and clinical practice pertaining primarily to children with moderate to severe neurological and genetic disorders, as well as in early childhood intervention. I have completed the Utah Regional Leadership Education for Neurodevelopmental Disorders (URLEND) fellowship program. This initiative is grant funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, preparing pediatric health care professionals to change the internal dynamics regarding lack of support for children with special health care needs across the rural Rocky Mountain West.
I work with parents who are advocates for their children, and I believe you are the best advocate for your child. This practice brings a fresh approach to family-centered care, with its commitment to involve parents as active participants in their child’s development. You are here now to become more tuned into yourself and tuned into your child. I have the clinical knowledge and evidence to guide your practice and you have the perfect inner compass to guide your child.
Let’s go on this journey together!
