Advanced Physical Therapy and Fitness
I was introduced to Physical Therapy (PT) as a profession while in high school during rehabilitation from a sports injury. I further became interested in pursuing PT as a career during my undergraduate studies at Union College in Lincoln, NE. While preparing to go to PT school I obtained by personal training certificate from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), as well as a B.S. in Exercise Science from Union College.
My physical therapy studies were completed at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI. I completed PT school in 2006, and since then I have been actively involved in the Andrews University post professional program for physical therapists. This program is currently affiliated with Aspire Orthopedic Manual Therapy Institute, which sets the highest standard in manual physical therapy practice. In 2017 I passed the specialty certification exam for both CMPT (certified manual physical therapist) and COMT (certified orthopedic manipulative therapist). In 2021 I passed the specialty exam for SMT (Spinal Manipulative Therapist). I have also received advanced training in the skill of Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN), also known as Intramuscular Manual Stimulation (IMS). This technique is only taught to experienced, manually based PT’s and requires advanced knowledge of the human musculoskeletal system, bio-mechanics, and the trigger point theory as set forth by Travel and Simons.
