Biography

Philosophy of care
My goal is to have a safe space for you to learn and ask questions so that you can return to activities that give your life meaning and happiness.

Why Rachel went into therapy
I wanted to improve shared decision making between the patient, prosthetist/orthotist, and rehabilitation team in order to patients the highest quality care.

Favorite advice to give patients
Don’t hesitate to ask questions! I am happy to answer them as best as I can, or direct you to someone who can.

Tower, Minnesota

Hobbies
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family on Lake Vermilion and coaching the Minnetonka High School Trapshooting Team.
