After 14 years in Boulder, CO, Pamela and her husband have returned to New England and are calling Vermont home. Pamela earned her Doctor of Physical therapy degree at MGH Institute of Health Professions, which was followed immediately by an internship at Spaulding Rehabilitation hospital in Boston. Upon completion of her internship she moved to Boulder where she spent her time in working in both acute care and out patient settings, serving people who had neurological and orthopedic impairments.
Her strengths include but are not limited to the following: Low Back, Ankle Sprains, Foot Pain, Knee Injuries, Chronic Pain, Balance & Vestibular Disorders, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury.. She is LSVT BIG certified for treatment of individuals with Parkinson's Disease. In addition to years of manual therapy continuing education, Pamela has completed Functional Dry Needling (Levels 1 + 2).
Pamela has added personal training to her resume as it helps her work in the world of wellness in addition to helping her clients train with the knowledge + safety of having a physical therapist in you corner. She call myself “the Swiss Army Knife” of health care providers. Furthermore, she is a certified running coach.
When she’s not in the clinic, you can find Pamela running or riding bikes - dirt or pavement! Hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing have become fun new hobbies as Pamela settles back into living in the snow. Professionally she is driven by the sucess of the individuals with whom she is working. Personally, Pamela lives by the motto “What Goes Around Comes Around” and it makes her feel balanced.
Pamela fell into her career in physical therapy while training for her first Boston Marathon. Knee pain lead her into a physical therapy office for the first time and the spark was lit. Pamela found physical therapy as the perfect outlet for her interest in biology, anatomy, physiology and, most of all, movement. This profession has allowed Pamela to work in a variety of settings, the most recent of which was her own practice within a personal training gym in Boulder, CO.
Upon moving back to Vermont, Pamela is continuing her focus on wellness as she offers both traditional physical therapy and personal training at Choice Physical Therapy. Choice’s open-minded approach to include wellness in our offerings and the opportunity to become engrained in the Richmond community made choosing to work at Choice easy.
