Kristen has always admired physical therapy as a career. She loves helping people live life well and to the fullest. She became even more interested in physical therapy while on a mission trip to Ensenada, Mexico. Her team went to visit a mother whose daughter had been in a car accident when she was 16 that severely injured her brain and spinal cord. Because of not having access to PT, the condition of her injury had progressed to where she could no longer move any of her extremities and she required a tracheotomy. The more Kristen learned about physical therapy, the more she realized that with PT, the woman’s daughter could have lived a much easier life. Because of her experience in Mexico, Kristen has a passion for neuromuscular injuries. And because of her active outdoor lifestyle, also enjoys helping those recovering from sports-related injuries.
Kristen enjoys interior design, nutrition, cooking, traveling, backpacking and rock climbing. Her mom and dad are outdoorsy and active as well as they are both avid runners. She has two younger brothers that are into dirt biking and fixing cars.
Kristen admires Health Quest for its quality of care and professionalism that it exudes through striving to help people achieve their optimal potential and strength for living life to the fullest.
