Jessica earned a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Northern Arizona University (Flagstaff, Arizona), where she competed on the rugby and golf teams. She continued her education with the completion of a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Pacific University (Forest Grove, Oregon). Upon graduation, Jessica worked in orthopedic PT settings in San Francisco for 10 years; she then spent several years working as a traveling PT across the country.
Jessica’s passion for fitness greatly influences her treatment philosophy: she is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS) and a certified Level 1 CrossFit trainer (CF-L1), and applies strength-training concepts into her practice. Jessica is also board certified in orthopedic physical therapy (OCS). She has also served as a volunteer PT in Central and South America through Operation Rainbow —a nonprofit that provides orthopedic surgeries and care for children in need.
Outside of work, Jessica stays active with competitive CrossFit, running and cycling (she has completed the AIDS/Lifecycle ride through California and the Ironman Vineman 70.3). Jessica loves to explore new trails and camp in National Parks with her partner and their dog, Lakota.
