Originally born in Henderson, my family moved to Spring Creek, NV when I was 11 years old. Coming from an underserved area in rural Northeastern Nevada, I first discovered the field of physical therapy after recurring injuries from running high school track and cross country. My passion grew as I desired to educate the public about the scope of practice of a physical therapist. As I began observing with a variety of therapists in different settings, I was instantly intrigued by pelvic health. I witnessed gratitude in so many women on their path to healing that inspired me to pursue this specific area of practice.
After high school I lived in Guatemala for 18 months as I served a mission for my church. Looking for continued diversity and growth, I moved to Hawaii to attend BYU-Hawaii. I enjoyed making friends from all over the world and embracing different cultures and ways of thinking. I also had the opportunity to compete on the school’s cross country team and worked as a spanish speaking tour guide at the Polynesian cultural center. In 2017, I graduated
with my B.S in Exercise Science with an emphasis in biomedical sciences and a minor coaching.
In 2021 I graduated with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, and received the award for “Excellence in Clinical Education.” My supportive husband, Tyler, and I enjoy the great outdoors – hiking, trail running, rock climbing, canyoneering, and backpacking around the world. I have completed several ultra marathons and love working with the running population.
The more I learn, the more I find my passion for this field grows and my desire to help others along their journey towards healing . My passion lies in community outreach and patient education. I hope to fulfill my role in reducing the gap in care for individuals experiencing pelvic pain and dysfunction.
