DPT – Doctor of Physical Therapy
Jolene Weesjes is a doctor of physical therapist at our Gaines Township location. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology at Calvin College in 2013 and earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Michigan in 2016, before starting her career at Hulst Jepsen Physical Therapy.
Jolene strives to provide evidence-based and individualized care to each patient. She enjoys treating patients of all ages and orthopedic diagnoses. She holds a special interest in treating those with athletic injuries—runners, triathletes, weekend warriors, and CrossFitters alike. Jolene believes that movement is the best medicine and she is passionate about helping her patients reach their rehabilitation goals.
Jolene is a continuous learner so that she can better treat her patients. She is certified in Dry Needling and Blood Flow Restriction Training. She is McKenzie trained, and has also earned a certification in the Clinical Management of the Fitness Athlete. She is currently working to earn certifications in Sportsmetrics, Gary Gray’s Functional Movement Assessment, as well as a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist. Within the company, Jolene leads our running and CrossFit teams and is also active in our marketing and social media groups.
In her spare time, outside of spending time with her husband and caring for her adorable puppy, Penny, Jolene can often be found doing CrossFit, training for Ironman events, camping, or traveling with friends. She also dedicates time back to her community with her leadership in November Project Grand Rapids and coaching at her gym.
