I am a doctor of physical therapy and an arthritis specialist.
I live in Sandy, Utah and am always out on my bike, up in the mountains, or on skis!
I truly think adventure can be so powerful in life- I know it is in mine.
In the beginning of my career as a physical therapist I was primarily seeing patients after
total knee and hip replacements. After seeing so many people going through the hard recovery,
complications, and infections, I knew there had to be a different way. One woman
ended up having SEVEN knee revisions on the same knee! That was the last straw.
Most of the people I saw after their surgeries had no idea there were any
other options for arthritis treatment. This kickstarted my mission to spread the word
about available options to help avoid surgery. Seeing one of my first clients go
from knee osteoarthritis pain for 5 years to running with confidence changed their life, and mine!
The doctor she saw was ready to schedule a surgery but she wanted to
avoid it at all costs. Put in the work and now is THRIVING.
I met so many people who thought they had to give up their adventure for the
rest of their lives because of this condition. Some have even moved out of
their homes because they were afraid they wouldn't be able to do stairs! I am committed to
showing you what is possible without surgery. I have shown hundreds of people change their lives
and the way they think about arthritis. Now, it's your turn.
Arthritis is just an obstacle we have to learn to navigate around. I want to provide you with the
resources to do so and with a positive way of thinking about it! My work has been featured all over and
I can't wait to share it with you.
