Amanda provides physical therapy services at the Dena’ina Wellness Center. She has experience in pediatric physical therapy, as well as neurological disorders, orthopedics, and equipment and orthotic assessment.
The ability for un’ina, “those who come to us,” to lead an active lifestyle is important to Amanda. The most rewarding part of her work is being able to watch people achieve things they didn’t think were possible.
Amanda earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the College of Saint Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in Winona, Minnesota.
Amanda was inspired to pursue a career in physical therapy by her own active lifestyle, and her desire to help children and adults achieve or restore their own activity in order to lead a healthy life.
Becoming a mom and competing in intercollegiate athletics are two of Amanda’s greatest accomplishments. When she’s not serving un’ina, she enjoys hiking, fishing and camping with her husband, two sons and their dog. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends, and cooking and baking.
