Born and raised in Silverton, Meagan knew she wanted to be a physical therapist after working as a PT aide during high school. The idea of treating patients’ chronic or acute pain with movement versus prescription medication aligned with her approach to medicine and how she wanted to help others. She considered other healthcare professions but quickly realized that blood and needles weren’t her strong suit.
Following high school, Meagan received her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from Oregon State University. She then went to George Fox University to complete her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. To Meagan, patient education and movement are essential to successfully overcoming injury and pain.
Meagan has a special interest in pelvic floor physical therapy. Seeing how this specialized type of care can transform a patient’s quality of life and the immense appreciation felt by patients during treatment ignited a passion within her. Meagan especially loves treating women including perinatal care, pelvic pain, and incontinence symptoms.
Meagan and her husband welcomed their first child, Knox, in September 2022. He is definitely the center of their world, and Meagan is fully embracing her new role as a mother.
