Michelle graduated from Loma Linda University with a Masters degree in Physical Therapy in 1999. Her interest in Physical Therapy began with injury management from her experiences in gymnastics and outdoor recreation. Originally from Oregon, she moved to Stayton with her husband in 2003 and has been practicing mostly in outpatient orthopedic settings since. She has previously worked for Pro-Motion from 2008 to 2013. During that time she studied at Pacific Northwest Pilates and received her certification in Stott Pilates for Rehabilitation in 2011. She then moved with her husband and 2 children to southern Oregon where she continued to incorporate Pilates into patient care programs while working for Riverside Physical Therapy. She has gained a lot of experience in total joint replacement care and especially enjoys working with knee, ankle, and shoulder injuries.
With her free time Michelle enjoys walking her dog, gardening, reading, mountain biking, and heading to the lake to swim and drive her jet ski with her family.
