Originally from Missouri, I received my Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training from Missouri State University after discovering a passion for anatomy and physiology in high school. I then moved to Madrid, Spain and earned a Master's degree in Sports Training and Nutrition at the Universidad Europea de Madrid while treating patients in a private physical therapy practice.
After returning to the US, I moved to Seattle for a change of scenery and was not disappointed by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I joined the OrthoSport team to help develop their work-conditioning program, which provides total body conditioning for injured workers so they can return to full participation in physically demanding jobs.
When I'm not in the clinic or providing medical coverage at sporting events, I enjoy cooking, binge-watching, easy hikes, traveling and pursuing my love of linguistics.
