Since beginning her journey toward becoming a physical therapist, she wants to spread the knowledge about physical therapy not just as a treatment after injury, but also to prevent injury too. Kelly is interested in manual therapy, sports-specific strength and balance training, and will be pursuing a pelvic floor specialty. When she is not working at the clinic, you can find her in the outdoors either hiking, camping, snowshoeing, or playing with her dog.

info:
A native of Oregon, Sarah completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Oregon, and went on to get her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University in 2008. During her course of practice she has had the opportunity to work in a number of different settings, in all parts of the country, and with many skilled practitioners who have helped make strong manual skills a backbone of her practice. Sarah's approach emphasizes a whole-body perspective to patient recovery and focuses on the benefits of healthy movement during the rehabilitation process and transition back to normal life. She finds great satisfaction in working with patients with a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and physical abilities, acting as an advocate for health in all aspects of their lives. Outside the clinic, Sarah can be found spending time with her friends and family, relaxing with coffee or a good book, and getting together with her loved ones for delicious home cooked meals. She is passionate about all things outdoors, and looks forward to getting back to the beauty of the pacific northwest after a few years away.

info:
I completed my Bachelor's degree in Healthcare Management looking to start a career that would utilize my skill set and abilities to support the community in a meaningful way. I am passionate about helping people feel welcome and valued from the first interaction and feel supported and enthusiastic about getting the care they need. Born and raised in the PNW, I can appreciate the beautiful scenery, quirky shops and local events, and delicious coffee this area has to offer. When I am home, you'll usually find me snuggled up with my meowing roommate, watching/listening to something true crime related, attempting a new amateur art project, or cooking a new recipe.
