From Rachel:

“I have lived in Oregon for the past 8 years and have enjoyed all the hiking, rafting, and biking adventures that are so easily accessible here! My husband, 2-year-old son, golden retriever, and I love to spend the weekends exploring Portland and the surround area, rain or shine. 

One of the things that drew me to the profession of physical therapy was the amount of time I would get to spend with my patients and really be part of their progress from start to finish. Everyone who walks into our clinic has a different story and I love taking the time to listen and set individualized goals that we can work towards together.

I enjoy treating most orthopedic conditions and have additional training in treating vestibular dysfunction and concussions.”
