Jenn received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Simmons College in 2008. Upon graduation, she worked in a hospital outpatient orthopedic center in Boston. In 2011, she and her husband, also a physical therapist, embarked on an adventure to travel the country while working in a variety of settings. In 2013, they were drawn to the Portland area for its rich community, amazing outdoor accessibility and proximity to family.
Jenn has continued to enhance her skills by specializing in pelvic floor rehabilitation to complement her extensive experience in orthopedics and movement quality-based therapies. A passionate yogi, Jenn received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification from Well Heart Yoga School in August 2015.
With the desire to help achieve wellness for her patients, Jenn utilizes her passion for yoga in a holistic approach to healing injury.
