Jessie received her undergraduate degree in psychology from Ohio University. She later earned her Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham. She enjoys her work in outpatient physical therapy because she gets to help such a wide variety of people.
Jessie is currently pursuing additional training in sports-related injuries and preventative injury programs for athletes of all ages. Being that she has a passion for sports and athletics, she aspires to specialize in these fields of physical therapy. She incorporates her knowledge of both cupping and myofascial release techniques into her treatments, and is also a clinical instructor.
Born and raised in Kettering, Ohio, Jessie brings with her a lot of Ohio pride. She has lived in Oregon since 2009, and loves all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
Jessie is a sports enthusiast, with her favorite teams being the Cleveland Browns, Cavaliers, and Indians, although she does keep up with the local Portland Trail Blazers as well. She loves to talk sports with her patients. Her other main interest is hiking with her wife, especially in National Parks. They have completed the 52 Hike Challenge for the past 2 years.
