Kristen is an avid mountain enthusiast who is passionate about helping people achieve their goals and move towards a full and healthy life.

Her love of the outdoors was born out of her roots in the Flathead Valley of Montana.  She completed her B.S. in Biology at Seattle Pacific University and went on to earn a Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Colorado.

Kristen has been practicing physical therapy in Seattle for 6 years with a focus on orthopedics and sports medicine.  She is committed to professional growth and providing the highest level of care in her practice.  Her treatment style combines manual therapy with patient education, movement analysis and targeted exercises.   She enjoys working with a wide variety of patients and injuries.  Her areas of special interests include treating competitive and recreational athletes as well as people with shoulder pain or injuries, low back or hip pain, and SI joint dysfunction.  She is certified in bike fitting and cycling biomechanics analysis and has also taken courses in muscle activation technique, the biomechanics of running, and pain sciences.

Outside of the clinic, Kristen’s interests include big mountain and back-country skiing, mountain biking, and climbing the beautiful peaks of the Pacific Northwest.  She also enjoys rock climbing, cross-country skiing, back-packing, running, and yoga.   She is involved in the community, volunteering at the Ballard Bridge Care Center for individuals experiencing homelessness as well as with She Jumps, a non-profit organization focused on empowering young girls by promoting participation of girls and women in outdoor activities.

 

“I consider it a privilege to come alongside people as they work towards recovering from injuries and pain issues.  I aim to explore and address the root of the problem, help individuals understand their specific injuries, and develop tools to achieve their goals and live their healthiest life.”
