Co-Founder and Physical Therapist

Brittany graduated from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan with a Bachelors in Health Science.  She then travelled down to the south to attend Belmont University in Nashville, TN for her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She graduated in August 2017. Over the years she has been certified in integrative dry needling and LSVT-BIG program for Parkinson’s disease. Over her career thus far Brittany has had experience with many orthopedic injuries, acute pain, chronic pain, neurological disorders, balance disorders, vertigo and dizziness, pediatrics, and geriatrics.  She has a passion for decreasing pain and eliminating impairments while educating patients on how they can continue to maintain an active lifestyle once they are ready to graduate from physical therapy.
