As a teenager in Florida, Jenn loved to watch people running on the beach. She was mesmerized with how the human body moved. When she had the opportunity as a young teenager to observe a physical therapist in private practice, she was intrigued with how that therapist was so creative with his treatments and realized she was destined to become a physical therapist.
Jenn began her career as a neurological physical therapist specializing in spinal cord injury in 1994 after receiving her first degree in physical therapy from University of Florida. She moved to Colorado in 1995 and began working in the hospital-based outpatient setting with patients with mild traumatic brain injuries and chronic pain. She became interested in pelvic physical therapy after battling her own pelvic issues following the birth of her third child. Passionate about women’s health physical therapy, she went on to complete a certification in pelvic physical therapy (CAPP-Pelvic) and a certification in pregnancy/postpartum physical therapy (CAPP-OB). In her pursuit of excellence, she earned her doctorate degree in physical therapy from University of Montana-Missoula in 2011 and went on to publish her capstone project in the peer-reviewed Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy. She then became an expert in the field of women’s health physical therapy by becoming a board certified women’s health clinical specialist (WCS).
Outside the clinic, Jenn teaches and lab assists for the American Physical Therapy Association Section on Women’s Health. She is a member of the CAPP-Pelvic Committee that updates and revises the evidence based curriculum training for physical therapists. As of February 2018, she will assume the position of Director of Education for the Section on Women’s Health. She also lectures twice a year to physical therapy assistant students at PIMA Medical Institute on the topics of pelvic health, pregnancy, and postpartum conditions related to physical therapy.
Jenn lives in Erie, Colorado with her husband Dan and their 3 teenage/tween daughters. She is often found in the stands with her husband, cheering on their girls while they compete in track, volleyball, cross country and whatever other sport/activity they choose. Her hobbies include running with her girlfriends, hiking, reading books, playing piano, crocheting, and boating.
