Sports have always been a huge part of my life. I grew in Stuart, NE, pop 600, and was active in sports. Primary basketball, football, and track, but took up golf later in life. After high school, sports and physical fitness continued to play an important part of my life.
I received my BS in Biology at UNK in 2006 and went on to Physical Therapy school at UNMC where I finished my DPT in 2010. After graduation I took a job at a private practice in Omaha. I worked there until 2023 when I decided to start my own practice. I opened Kinetic Physical Therapy in Nov 2023!
Continuing education is an important part the Physical Therapy profession, and sports and orthopedics have always been my primary interests. In 2014, I obtained my Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) certification, which is one of the highest designations awarded in our profession. Specialist certification formally recognizes Physical Therapists who have demonstrated advanced clinical knowledge and skills in a specific area of physical therapist practice.
Sports remain a huge part of my life, as I remain an active runner and golfer. I wanted to bring the same education and expertise to golf as I do my running analysis and rehabilitation so in 2018 I completed my TPI Level 1 Certification. I enjoyed it so much I immediately finished my Medical 2 certifcation, and recently finished the Junior 2 program. I love the game of golf, and enjoy bringing my expertise and passion for the game to the golfing community. Whether your goal is hitting or longer or just playing without pain, I will work with your golf instructor to develop a plan to meet your goals and make golf more enjoyable.
