Hi, I’m Francine. I graduated from Central Michigan University in 1995 with a B.S. in Sports Medicine and became a NATA Certified Athletic Trainer. I then moved to Alaska and worked as a personal trainer and personal assistant for people with disabilities, which sparked my interest in physical therapy. I returned to Central Michigan University, receiving a M.S. in Physical Therapy in 2001. I moved to Jackson, Wyoming in 2005 and started Excel Physical Therapy in a local fitness facility. During that time as well, I also held a part-time position at Teton Physical Therapy, where I met Maria Lofgren. Maria and I have been co-owners of Excel Physical Therapy since 2007.
I believe deeply in the benefits of continuously improving your education and skills. This passion has led me to advance my skills and to receive many certifications including earning my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Rocky Mountain University in June of 2014.
My specialties include:
- Sports Metric Certified
- Z Health Certified
- Athletic training Certified
- Yoga Therapy
- AromaTouch Certified
- Manual Therapy including joint and soft tissue mobilization
- Dry needling
I enjoy working with all patient populations but specialize in orthopedic and sports physical therapy with an emphasis on the rehabilitation of athletic injuries and return to peak performance. I have a passion for travel and enjoys a variety of sports, especially skiing, mountain biking, and running.
