Introduction to our Founder10526060_10152235559428601_1907053781148863191_n

Being active is an imperative part of my life. From my earliest days growing up in southwest New Mexico with the Gila National Forest as my backyard and becoming a champion mountain biker, to later years when I would complete multiple Ironman races and marathons, an ultra marathon, CrossFit competitions and more, my life has been about healthy movement.

This passion for movement, and health and wellness is the foundation for RunFree Physical Therapy and Human Performance. My most successful days are when clients tell me things like, “I took my kids camping this weekend and had no pain,” “I finished my first 10K and my knees feel great,” or “I slept through the night for the first time in months.”

I use physical therapy as a tool to help clients reach personal milestones like these and my goal is to guide them to holistic wellness spanning the mind, body and spirit. Correcting issues with the body is simply the first component in building a client’s overall wellness.

With four years as a physical therapist and nearly 20 in the health and wellness industry in roles such as a coach, personal trainer and wellness director, I have the tools and experience to fully evaluate each client’s goals and concerns to help them get to their ideal level of wellness.

Believing that I was made to help people improve their health and wellness, I sought my doctorate in physical therapy after being Wellness Director at a large, successful YMCA. I loved that role but wanted to have the ability to offer more to my clients. In 2014, I graduated from Regis University, with my doctorate, having completed the highest level of education about how the human body functions.

Over the next four years, I practiced physical therapy across the country in a variety of settings, in locations from Boston to Washington state before settling in Golden, Colorado. I saw Golden as the ideal place to grow my practice into one that is more than a PT clinic, but a true wellness practice for the community that combines functional medicine with mind, body, spiritual wellness and fitness for clients to discover — or return to — their best selves.

In the health care and wellness industries, new research and findings are always guiding practitioners on how to best serve clients with the most up to date information. That’s why I strongly believe in continuing education and have hundreds of hours invested in various classes. In addition, my post-doctorate training includes certifications in level two functional dry needling, applied functional science and medical bike fitness.

When I am not guiding people to wellness at RunFreePT, I’m either doing something physically active or reading.
