DPT – Doctor of Physical Therapy
Sarah is a licensed physical therapist at our Pelvic Rehabilitation Center in Wyoming. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Grand Valley State University in 2010. She then continued her graduate studies at Grand Valley State University, earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2013. After graduation, Sarah participated in the Lulenski-Smith Residency Program at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, a 1-year Post-Doctoral Fellowship focusing on brain injuries and research. After her fellowship, she spent several years working in the outpatient neurological setting until she came to find her true professional passion in women’s pelvic floor therapy. She has made it her personal and professional goal to educate patients and the community about the benefits of pelvic floor therapy and to help more individuals who suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction.
Sarah has completed advanced post-doctoral training through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and specializes in women’s pelvic health including pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, sexual health, urinary and bowel incontinence/frequency/urgency, chronic constipation, pregnancy, and the postpartum client. She particularly enjoys working with individuals diagnosed with endometriosis and any pelvic symptoms related to cancer diagnosis and treatments.
Sarah recognizes the sensitivity of discussing and treating pelvic floor concerns and therefore is focused on creating a safe and brave space where these topics may be discussed, and resources may be provided to meet patient goals. Treatments are specific and individualized to each individual client and emphasis is put on using strategies to not just address the symptoms, but also the root cause of pain and dysfunction.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys gardening, exercising, ballroom dancing with her husband, reading, traveling, and going to the symphony.
