“I love watching how orthopedic and neurologic influences work in the human body. No system exists in isolation and I love helping my patients solve that puzzle for themselves.”
My Personal Story
Lisa has over 20 years of experience as a physical therapist. In 2001, she received a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) with highest honors from Creighton University. Lisa has always had a passion for treating complex problems by focusing on the whole person. Drawing on advanced coursework through the Postural Restoration Institute, Therapeutic Movement Seminars and BradCliff Breathing Method, Lisa uses an integrated approach to assessing the whole person.
Teaching patients about their bodies and what is happening to them is important to Lisa. Empowering patients to regain control of their lives and enjoy their activities again is one of her favorite parts of her practice.
“I never want a patient to feel rushed through an appointment. I love questions and hope that my patients feel there is always enough time for questions and answers.”
In 2007, Lisa received her Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) designation from the American Physical Therapy Association. Lisa enjoys treating patients with complex neurologic and orthopedic interactions that manifest themselves as joint pain, breathing problems, headaches, migraines or dizziness.
In 2006, Lisa completed the highest certification for vestibular rehabilitation available for physical therapists (“Herdman certified”) at Emory University. Since that time, she has continued to advance her practice through continuing education and self-study.
Lisa has also worked as an Adjunct Professor at Pima Medical Institute and serves as a Guest Lecturer for Bastyr University. She teaches continuing education courses for physical therapists on topics related to cervicogenic dizziness and breathing pattern disorders.
When she is not practicing physical therapy, Lisa enjoys the outdoors—hiking, kayaking, or just sitting in the park. She also practices Tae Kwon Do. She also loves to cook and experiment with new recipes and ingredients.
