A Bit About Me

Emily grew up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where she loved being active and spending time outside with her sister, riding their horses, Teton and Annie Oakley. Emily participated in swimming, track, and rodeo in high school, and continued to compete in track and field at the college level where she competed in the heptathlon. She continues to passionately pursue the outdoors with biking, hiking, skiing, and running. 

Work Experience

Emily's undergraduate education consisted of two Bachelor degrees in Exercise Science and Spanish from Hope College in Holland, Michigan in 2015. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Montana in 2018. During her graduate education, she completed three competitive clinical placements at:

  • Portneuf Medical Center (Pocatello)

  • Kootenai Medical Center

  • Salt Lake City Veteran's Affairs Hospital

Emily continued her career with an additional year of study to become a specialist in orthopedic physical therapy through a residency at the University of Utah. During this year, she taught in their Physical Therapy graduate program, as well as, practiced in their Orthopedic Center and provided community outreach through the free health clinic.

Emily has now returned to Coeur d'Alene, bringing with her the experiences from working at the University of Utah and within the competitive athletic and aging populations of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She looks forward to continuing to help patients reach their goals here in Northern Idaho.
