Susan graduated with a Physical Therapy Degree from Eastern Washington University in 1991. She also earned a degree in Exercise Science from Western Washington University. Prior to attending physical therapy school she worked as an athletic trainer and has provided sports medicine for a number of schools and sports teams. Susan’s areas of expertise include exercise prescription, sports injury management, manual therapy, and strain counterstrain.
Susan has an amazing story of her own physical challenges and recovery from a stroke at the young age of 37. She uses her personal experiences as a stroke survivor to better relate to the challenges her patients face with their injuries. She has been at Northside Physical Therapy for almost 18 years, although she took two years off for her own intense rehabilitation.
Outside of work, she and her husband are avid supporters of their two daughters’ involvement in sports, and she is also very involved in her church.
