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 school. 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 with Premier Therapy Associates and have been working there since. Continuing education is an important part the Physical Therapy profession, and sports and orthopedics have always been my primary interests. In 2014, I passed my Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, OCS, exam, 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've completed two 1/2 marathons and my first full marathon in 2015. With further education and training on running mechanics and video analysis, we started RunRight Stride Analysis training program for training and rehabilitation. I wanted to bring the same education and expertise to golf so in 2018 I completed my TPI Level 1 Certification enjoyed it so much I immediately started working on Medical 2 certification and finished 2019. 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, we can develop a treatment team and plan to meet your goals and make golf more enjoyable.
