Amanda Jerkins received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in 2018. She has worked with diverse patient populations, with increased focus on orthopedic and neurological care. This has encouraged the development of a strong passion for both orthopedic and neurological specialties and she is excited to provide well-rounded care that addresses each of these areas.
Prior to attending graduate school, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in exercise and sports science from Oregon State University in 2012. Upon graduating from OSU, she worked in a variety of medical settings that included physical therapy, surgery, dementia care, and oncology. Her time in these settings, in conjunction with physical therapy school, taught her the importance of meeting an individual patient’s needs based on their unique situation. She strives to provide patient care that is unique and specific to each individual, regardless of their condition.
Her hobbies include playing soccer, trying new foods, sinking into a good book, and spending time with her husband.
