Sarah has been practicing as a physical therapist at UW Sports Medicine since 2004.

Sarah has a strong orthopedic focus, with special interest in runners and bikers, as well as women's health. She conducts biomechanical assessments of runners and bikers, as well as assessments for orthotics. With a very diverse caseload of orthopedic and sports related injuries, Sarah has been able to expand her skills as a manual therapist using muscle energy techniques, joint mobilization, myofascial release, Kinesio Tape and Graston technique.

Sarah earned both her bachelor's and master's degree in physical therapy from the University of Washington.

She is certified with Graston, as well as Kinesio Taping and a Bikefit PT Pro. Sarah participated in a research study for ACL prevention in female athletes and has been a clinical instructor for physical therapist interns.

Patient Care Philosophy

I especially have a passion for helping people to overcome their injuries by empowering them with the tools and education to get back to performing the activities they love. I believe in developing strong interpersonal relationships with my patients and identifying the biomechanical causes of their injuries, and using a multifaceted approach to create a well-balanced treatment program that is realistic for their life style.

I use manual therapy and motor control activities in addition to functional exercises and activity-specific training to help people efficiently achieve their individual goals.

Personal Interests

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I enjoy being outside rain or shine. If I am not working, you can find me running, biking, playing tennis or volleyball, hiking, snowboarding and playing hard with my husband and two children.
