When Kim was studying to become a physical therapist, she always wanted to be in an environment like Sport + Spine. She was initially drawn to Sport + Spine due to her background, but she stays for the people she serves, Kim says. “It’s a rewarding job, seeing people return to the life they love and athletes making good progress in their sport. It’s fun!”
As PT Manager, Kim spends most of her days in patient care and physical therapist management. She also enjoys staying current and educated, supporting Sport + Spine’s modern, functional approach to therapy. “At Sport + Spine, we figure out the why, and then get patients up and moving.”
Kim is a busy mom of two active boys. She loves spending time outside with them, especially splashing around in the pool or lake. She hopes to one day find some more “me” time to train for another triathlon. For now, she enjoys the workout of jogging with a good friend or a hot yoga class. She loves working with all Sport + Spine patients, but as a result of becoming a mom, Kim says, she enjoys working with patients who are also parents. “It’s fun to work with people who have a little more experience than me in the parenting department!” Learn more about Kim on the Sport + Spine blog.
