Laura enjoys treating patients of all ages and with a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and diagnoses. She believes in the importance of treating the whole person and creating patient-centered goals so that each patient can return to participation in meaningful life activities – whether that means returning to sport or playing with grandchildren. She finds joy in empowering patients through movement optimization and education and has special interests in sports performance, pediatrics, and the young athlete.
Laura was born in Southern California and grew up with a love for sports and outdoor activity. After moving to the Seattle area, she fell in love with the culture of the Pacific Northwest, and can now be found hiking, running to train for marathon or half marathon distance events, and coaching or playing volleyball. She enjoys spending quality time with friends and family as well as reading everything from books for fun to academic journals for the latest research in orthopedics and sports medicine.
