Lisa obtained both her Bachelor of Science in Physical Education & Master Degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Puget Sound. She began her career in 2000 in the outpatient therapy department at St. Charles Medical Center. In 2007, Lisa and her husband, Ari left Bend to travel around the world for a year.
Upon their return, Lisa made a decision to focus her career on hand and upper extremity therapy and worked for two years with a hand therapy group in Olympia, WA. Lisa and her family returned to Bend in late 2009 and has since continued her focus on upper extremity rehabilitation. Lisa enjoys being with Ari and their two daughters, traveling, speaking Spanish, and the great outdoors of Central Oregon.
