Outpatient Physical Therapy
Providence Health & Services
Janet trained under and performed with a professional ballet company outside of Chicago, IL, for 13 years. She moved to Atlanta, GA, to attend Emory University for college where she completed her Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Biology and also her Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. Janet has been an outpatient orthopedic Physical Therapist since 2006. Earlier in her career, her clinical specialty was sports PT, rehabilitating dancers and athletes. Janet moved to Portland, OR, in 2015 and currently practices at Providence Health & Services. She strongly believes in patient and continuing education, serves as a clinical instructor, and mentors colleagues. In addition, Janet loves developing strong relationships with her patients through empathic listening and compassion. Janet approaches her care through a Health At Every Size (HAES), size-inclusive, trauma informed, and social justice paradigm. She is working to integrate PT with eating disorder recovery to help patients develop safe and intuitive relationships with movement and their bodies. This work is very close to her heart since she has suffered from an eating disorder for over 25 years and has been in recovery since 2013. Janet has been married to her husband, Jeff, for over 11 years, and together they have a three and a half year old daughter, Ella. She enjoys hiking, swimming, traveling, reading, sports, and spending time with family and friends, especially outdoors.
