Hannah earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Rhode Island (URI) in 2012, and has been practicing as a licensed physical therapist in the state of Minnesota for over five years. Working mostly as a contract physical therapist prior to launching her own practice, has allowed Hannah to gain a significant depth of experience working with all age levels and in a wide variety of settings. Hannah’s passion lies in outpatient physical therapy, where she can approach a patient holistically, ultimately treating the root of the issue for the most successful outcome. While therapeutic exercise and neuromuscular re-education are large pieces of the puzzle, Hannah also has extensive training in manual therapy and muscle energy practices.
She continues to further her education through frequent seminars as well. Hannah is a Certified Kinesiotaping Practitioner, and is also certified in the LSVT BIG program (a program for people with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological issues).
Prior to URI, Hannah completed her undergraduate degree at South Dakota State University (SDSU), where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion. During her four years at SDSU, she swam competitively at the NCAA Division I level, and also earned a prestigious NCAA postgraduate scholarship.
Hannah was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, and now resides in the Alexandria area with her husband, Kris, their baby, Owen, and three dogs. They enjoy hunting, fishing, outdoor activities, and visiting family in Alaska as often as possible.
Hannah is thrilled to launch her own practice to be able to provide unique, patient-centered physical therapy services in Central MN.
