Julie graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell with a BS in Physical Therapy in 1982. She began her career in a county hospital with rotations including outpatient care, inpatient acute care, chest physical therapy, acute Rehabilitation, and home care services.
She relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 1987 due to her love for outdoor activities, fitness and a healthy lifestyle. There she focused her clinical skills for multiple years working full time in outpatient orthopedics and manual therapy.
After a relocation to Texas in 2002, she worked for several years in Acute Care Hospital setting and Sub acute rehabilitation settings.
Her many years of clinical practice has taught her a lot about empathy for those with acute and chronic pain conditions, as well as post-surgical care. She uses motivational and clinical tools to assist patients from all age groups and conditions to return to their individual optimal functional mobility and activities.
She joined Podiatry Associates in April 2020 and is enjoying the transition back to outpatient orthopedic Rehabilitation.
