Meet the founders of Parkinson’s Pointe
As a physical therapist, I have always had a vision that we could do better and help more people. Since 2005 I have been experimenting and cultivating how to best help people get better and stay better. My vision is to share my expertise of Parkinson’s Disease and how to best manage it through learning to be resilient, using exercise like medicine, and finding support through community. Simply put, helping people create the life they love, despite Parkinson’s Disease.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve believed in the importance of exercise, a healthy diet, stress management and human connections for creating the best lives for ourselves. I developed a special interest in helping others overcome injury and found my way into the healthcare field. However, I recognized early in my career that physical therapy alone could not fix everyone’s problems, especially those with a chronic disease. I saw gaps and little structure in our system. I went on to pursue my MBA in healthcare administration and explore how I could amplify my impact. Parkinson’s Pointe is a solution for those living with Parkinson’s Disease who want to take an active role in their life. I am excited to help bring this vision to life and share my passions for movement, the outdoors, cooking vegetables and connecting people with this community.
