Since arriving in Jackson, I have enjoyed the outdoor mountain lifestyle through downhill skiing, Nordic skiing, and mountain biking. I also enjoy the challenge of high altitude organic gardening.
Fun fact about me: I am also a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) and own Lucky Dog Rehabilitation here in the valley.
A physical therapy thought: Pelvic Stabilization. Without stable hips, it is hard to maintain balance and execute more complex movements for daily activities or advanced athletics.
