My Story

I was born in a rural area of Montana. I had a mission since I was young that I wanted a career where I could live out my passion of caring for others. I went to the school counselor's office and asked to look at the career opportunities. I knew I was interested in Science and Health. When I came across the description of Physical Therapy, I knew which direction I wanted to go. I was recruited to George Fox University due to my love and passion for running. Leaving my home and going to George Fox University in Oregon changed my life.  I found my love of learning everything I could learn about. A world of opportunity opened up like a scenic view from a mountain top. I had a group of friends and anonymous  people who at every turn that I needed help, I got it. I learned what community was and can be. 

I have had a wonderful career from being in an Athletic Training program, Licensed Massage Therapist for Chiropractors, volunteer events, in clinic and outcall, a Lead Physical Therapist, a volunteer from community and Professional Sport events to now creating my business:

Garage Training & Rehab Gym.
