BIO

Jessie has been a physical therapist for over 18 years. She has been involved with educating physical therapy students and others PTs for most of her career.

The FAAOMPT (Fellow of the American Association of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists) designation is held by less than 1% of physical therapists in the state. Fellowship training involves rigorous classroom work, testing and over 400 mentored clinical hours.

In addition to Jessie's many years of clinical work, her fellowship training and earning board certification by the American Physical Therapy Association (OCS) have prepared her to help people with a wide range of health-related issues in an effective, empathetic, evidence-based and efficient manner.

Jessie has published several research articles and spoken at conferences nationally and internationally. She has a special interest in clinical decision making and incorporating the latest research into clinical practice. Most recently, Jessie has added therapeutic neuroscience education and mindfulness techniques (healthy habit changes, stress relief, managing changes in health status) into her clinical practice. This holistic approach acknowledges the importance of the mind-body connection. 

When not working, she enjoys spending time with family, exercising -whatever feels good that day- spending time in nature and practicing mindfulness.
