Jessica received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of California, San Francisco/San Francisco State University in 2016 and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Neuroscience from the University of San Francisco. She has completed a post-doctoral certification in Therapeutic Neuroscience Education through the International Spine and Pain Institute in August 2018 and continues to take courses through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy. Jessica comes to physical therapy with a diverse background in music, software development, and several teaching certifications in yoga and medication.
Jessica’s approach to physical therapy is holistic, combining neuroscience and psychology with exercise, functional movement, and education. This approach is empowering to patients of all backgrounds. Jessica enjoys working with recreational and amateur athletes; people with back pain, neck pain, or chronic pain; and anyone with general orthopedic and neurologic concerns.
Originally from the Midwest, Jessica is happy to call Portland home. She enjoys spending time doing photography, biking, running, hiking, fixing up her old house, practicing mindfulness, birdwatching, and working on her yard, which is certified as a Backyard Habitat through the Audubon Society and Columbia Land Trust.
