With almost 20 years of experience in the profession of PT and a licensed therapist for over a decade, Erika has learned that the most important aspect to her role is not to tell clients what to do, but rather take a team approach with clients to interpret what their bodies are telling them. Her primary focus is to help each client return to sport, recreation, or day-to-day life without limitation of pain or injury. Hearing the words “I was told I will never be able to do that again” is what motivates her to find unique, individualized solutions that optimize a return to prior lifestyle.
Erika earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science from Montana State in 2003 and her Clinical Doctorate from the Mayo Clinic in 2007. She has gone on to become board certified in Orthopedics, earned her certification as an Integrated Manual Therapist and is Dry Needle certified. In addition, she has training in strength and conditioning, strength coaching, and powerlifting and has worked closely with trainers and athletes in the community. She uses extensive manual therapy skills, pilates, and functional strengthening to treat sports and orthopedic conditions, specializing in spine, pelvis, hip, and chronic pain disorders and post-op recovery.
Outside of the clinic, Erika can be found alpine and nordic skiing, lifting at the gym, visiting family back home in Montana, or instructing and competing in the sport of skydiving.
