About Me

I was born and raised on a farm in Decorah, Iowa. I was very active in sports throughout high school but had many injuries involving my ankles, knees, and shoulders. I was fortunate to have some wonderful therapists that helped me recover from these injuries and improve my overall strength in order to prevent further injuries and continue playing the sports I loved. These experiences motivated me to pursue a career in physical therapy.


I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Luther College where I majored in Biology and minored in Psychology. I am currently a 3rd year physical therapy student at Des Moines University.
