Bio:

Ashley was a 4-year member of the Dance Team at Gustavus Adolphus College and grew up playing soccer, basketball, and golf. She has a passion for sports and helping patients return to the sports they love. Prior to becoming a physical therapist, Ashley practiced as a Certified Athletic Trainer working with high school state champion athletic teams.

Ashley’s treatment approach includes various manual therapy techniques combined with neuromuscular
re-education and exercise to help maintain changes achieved in therapy. She strongly believes that the most successful patients are the ones who are educated on the risk factors and causes of their injuries empowering them to prevent the injuries from recurring.
