Knowing she always had a passion for knowledge and working with children, Jenn’s career path gravitated toward physical therapy. After earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at Missouri State University, she went on to receive her Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) at MSU in 2008. With experience in inpatient, outpatient and home health settings, Jenn has been exclusively practicing pediatric physical therapy since 2011. Her unknown dream was realized when she was asked to be part of the Dynamic Strides Therapy (DST) team in 2016. DST has provided amazing opportunities to learn about the needs in the community, how to increase accessibility to therapy services, and allowed her to meet and work with incredible kids and families.
Jenn is currently a practicing physical therapist as well as clinic manager for Dynamic Strides Therapy. She loves that DST provides the opportunity to work both indoors and outdoors, as well as the incorporation of hippotherapy. Jenn was recognized as being one of Springfield Business Journal’s “Healthcare Champions” in 2018.
Jenn is married to her husband, Bryan, together they have two children, William and Blythe. They love spending time together taking road trips, visiting state capitols, and taking in the history of the country.
