Chris obtained her BS in Biology from Buena Vista College in 1993, and her Master’s in Physical Therapy from University of Iowa in 1995. She found her interest in PT while in high school, working in Sioux Valley Memorial Hospital PT while pursuing her education. This job exposed Chris to several manual therapy methods involved in treating pain and joint dysfunction. She has continued to build on this education through her continuing education. Chronic pain, headaches, sacroiliac, and low back pain are her favorite areas to treat. She has also built a specialty in Women’s Health, treating pelvic pain and incontinence. Chris has been in the Cherokee office since it opened and enjoys serving the Cherokee area. Chris and her husband Brian live in Paullina raising their 3 children, Jessie, Nicole, and Levi. They enjoy camping, flying, and spending time with their families.
