PT, DPT, CKTP, FMS 1&2
Deb brings her love of sports and experience as an elite level Ultimate Frisbee player to her practice, with the goal of bringing out the athlete in everyone no matter what their activity of choice. She treats to find the root cause so you will not only feel better, but move better. Deb utilizes a variety of techniques in evidence-based treatments that are tailored to best match each person’s symptoms, movement patterns, and goals. In collaboration with a local women’s health PT and a personal trainer/strength coach, Deb and her colleagues developed a “Post-Partum Return to Performance” program to help active moms regain their strength, stability, and higher-level function no matter how far away from childbirth they may be.

Deb grew up participating in many sports including soccer, alpine and Nordic skiing, baseball/softball, basketball, and whatever climbing/running/jumping could be incorporated into games and adventures with her brothers. She got hooked on Ultimate Frisbee in college and competed at the highest levels nationally and internationally, including 2 National Championships and 5 World Championships. She was inducted into the USA Ultimate Hall of Fame in 2019.
