Professional Interests:

Sarah enjoys meeting and working with individuals of all different backgrounds. She has clinical experience working in the acute care setting as well as outpatient orthopedic clinics, assessing and treating individuals post-neurological insult as well as patients who seek PT pre- and post-operative orthopedic procedures. Her treatment approach involves utilizing current evidence-based practices which incorporate Manual Therapy, Neuromuscular Re-education, and Therapeutic Exercise to enable individuals to regain optimal function and reach their individual goals. Her immediate plan is to enroll in multiple advanced courses through the University of St. Augustine to become Manual Therapy Certified (MTC) as well as obtain certification in Functional Dry Needling. Sarah also is interested in Active Release Techniques (ART) and Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) to address muscular imbalances and subsequent range of motion deficits and plans to take courses in these areas. 

Personal Interests:

Sarah enjoys all things outdoors and staying active through day-hiking, off-roading, backpacking, car camping, and snowboarding with friends. Growing up in California, she loves spending time on the beach, but has also grown to love the mountains and snow since attending graduate school in Flagstaff, Arizona. She loves to cook and bake for anyone who is willing to be the recipient, and occasionally plays pick-up indoor and sand volleyball. She is the youngest in a family of five and enjoys spending time with her older brother, sister, and parents when she has the chance!
