Victoria earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Western University of Health Sciences. She received her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science, with emphasis on biomechanical research in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine from Seattle Pacific University.
Victoria has completed the Orthopedic Clinical Residency Program, which includes extensive manual therapy training through the North American Institute of Manual Therapy (NAIOMT). She is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and has coached all levels of athletes to meet their sport-specific performance goals. Victoria’s specialties include throwing analysis and overhead athlete sport performance training, injury prevention through lifestyle modifications often assessed with tools such as Selective Functional Movement Assessments as well as the Functional Movement Screen (SFMA and FMS), manual therapy, and biomechanical gait analyses. Victoria has worked with members of the Major League Baseball (MLB) association as well as Olympic level track and field athletes utilizing her overhead athlete program for both rehabilitation and sport performance enhancement developed in her Residency.
Victoria brings empathy to the practice, as she has experienced firsthand the success of skilled Physical Therapy as a multi-sport athlete, once temporarily wheelchair-bound, and strives to pass on this hope by getting patients back to the activities they love with an evidence-based approach. She has participated in sports such as softball/baseball, basketball, volleyball, hockey, lacrosse, gymnastics, wakeboarding/snowboarding, yoga/pilates, and track bringing a unique and personal perspective to biomechanical focused rehabilitation simulating each sport.
