Erin grew up all over the western United States. She graduated from high school in Salinas, California, received a Bachelor in Exercise Science from University of Arizona, and earned her Masters in Physical Therapy at Chapman University in Orange, California, in 1998. Erin first worked in acute care at Community Hospital of Monterey Peninsula.
After gaining some experience, she pursued her interest in orthopedics at a private practice clinic in Salinas, California. In 2001, she came to Central Oregon and she has been working and growing with Rebound ever since. Erin became a Stott certified Pilates instructor in 2005 and received her Rehab Pilates certification through Stott in 2010. She is one of the only Rehab Pilates certified PT in Central Oregon and is the director for Rebound’s Rehab Pilates program. Stott Pilates is a contemporary, anatomically-based approach to the mind-body exercise practice. Combined with her expertise in orthopedics and manual therapy, this has been very beneficial to her patients. Prenatal and postpartum care is also a special interest of Erin’s practice.
Erin’s postgraduate education in women’s health includes coursework in obstetrics, both prenatal and postpartum, orthopedic incontinence, organ prolapse and visceral mobilization through APTA and Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute. She applies a holistic approach to restore function and quality of life. She has taken obstetrics coursework through the APTA and directs Rebound’s Women’s Health program, which focuses on pain management, preventative care and patient education during pregnancy and in the months and years to follow. Erin, her husband Scott, and their two children enjoy the Central Oregon lifestyle with skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, and the warmer months are full of water skiing, wakeboarding, mountain biking and camping.
