Philosophy of care
“I believe that each patient needs to be treated individually, so I try to understand them and their needs to develop a care plan that will serve them best. I strive to find out what will motivate them, what their learning style is and what their goals are. I also provide a lot of education in my treatment sessions, as I feel it is crucial to a patient’s success.”

Why Amanda went into therapy
“I grew up as a three sport athlete. In high school I tore my ACL and had a nine month recovery with physical therapy. Two years later, I tore my other ACL while playing college soccer. I recognized that physical therapy combines many of my passions including education and teaching, helping others, and creativity. I have also always wanted to work with kids and I knew as a PT this was something I would be able to do. In PT school, I found my interest in pelvic health and obstetrics, and have further developed my passion for working with this population.”

Favorite advice to give patients
“Physical therapy is not a passive treatment. It is something you must believe in and participate in. You will not get better if you do not put in the effort and understand the purpose of physical therapy. Success requires work from both the physical therapist and the patient.”

Hobbies
“My husband and I enjoy getting outdoors to enjoy the beautiful Chequamegon Bay area with our dog. I enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, sewing and reading. I also enjoy spending time with family.”

Languages
“I took Spanish through high school as well as two and a half years in college. I am currently studying Spanish and hope to become more fluent. I have treated patients who speak Spanish and hope to continue to learn to serve this population.”
