Kendra is a Wyoming native from Jackson, Wyoming where she grew up camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities. She played high school and club volleyball, where her love for physical therapy sparked when she became a patient due to volleyball related injuries. Kendra received her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Health Promotion from the University of Wyoming in 2017 and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in May of 2020.
Kendra’s love for Wyoming, the outdoors, and for healthcare in rural communities brought her back to Laramie and High Country Physical Therapy where she is eager to kick start her career! Kendra assisted in a geriatric high intensity interval training research study here in Laramie and in developing an evidence-based fall prevention program in Las Vegas. Through both of these experiences, she developed a passion for treating the geriatric population, reducing their risk of falling, and ultimately improving their independence. Besides treating the geriatric population, Kendra is pursuing continuing education in treating pelvic health, vestibular, and orthopedic conditions in order to optimally treat Laramie’s community members. Kendra and her fiancé enjoy camping, backpacking, hiking, skiing, and spending time with family and friends in their spare time.
