Kristen grew up in Jackson, MS, and attended the University of Alabama where she earned her degree in Exercise Science. She then completed her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). She knew she wanted to be a physical therapist after undergoing a spinal fusion surgery for scoliosis in high school and seeing the need for physical therapy through her recovery.
Kristen has experience as an orthopedic physical therapist and has advanced training in functional dry needling. She developed her passion for pelvic health during her first pregnancy. After giving birth to her son John, she knew she wanted to go into the field of pelvic health physical therapy. Kristen is particularly passionate about treating pregnant and postpartum women and aims to equip and empower them to thrive. She hopes to see the field of pelvic health PT continue to grow and is excited to provide this much needed service to women in Northeast Arkansas.
Outside of the clinic, Kristen enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being active through cycling and Pilates, vacationing at the beach, and being with her pug, Emma.
