Kelsey primarily uses a movement-based approach to facilitate more efficient motor patterns her patients' daily activities and goals. Using specific patient education and a break-down of daily movement habits, she works to teach her patients how to create an appropriate healing environment for their strained, overused, or otherwise maladapted tissues.
She has the goal of meeting patients where they are and giving them tools to take the next step to improve their health, fitness and well-being. She highly values empowering clients to heal themselves by better understanding their movement patterns and habits, how they can respond differently, and thus prevent recurrence of injury.
Kelsey completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Biology from the University of California, Davis in 2009 and received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Pacific University in 2013. She has sought further orthopedic training from movement and manual therapy programs alike, such as Movement System Impairment Syndromes (MSI), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and Kaiser Hayward Manual Therapy Advanced Skills.
In her free time, Kelsey enjoys sharing stories with family and friends, trying out new recipes and playing with movement of all kinds. She enjoys participating in triathlons, playing volleyball, soccer and Ultimate, snowboarding, hiking and backpacking.
