Pronouns: She, Her, Hers
Amy received her Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy from Pacific University. Prior to attending Pacific, she received her Honors Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Science from Oregon State University. As an Oregon native, she has been happy to call the Portland-Metro her home since 2015.
Amy’s passion for physical therapy stems from a high school soccer injury. It was during her own rehabilitation process that she discovered a profession that would allow her to help patients reach their goals, maintain her own active lifestyle, and provide her with many advancement opportunities. Since her initial passion was sparked, Amy has developed special interests in injury prevention, manual therapy, and working with the pediatric population. To ensure she can provide the best care for her patients, Amy stays up to date on the latest research and is pursuing her Manual Therapy Certification through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT).
Outside of helping patients get better in the clinic, Amy strives to be an advocate for the physical therapy profession. During her education, she was involved in legislative advocacy activities at a state and national level. She also acts as a clinical instructor to physical therapy students to help ensure high quality physical therapists for years to come.
On the weekends, Amy loves to be physically active, hike, camp, and spend quality time with her husband and dog.
