As a native of Floyds Knobs, Indiana, Emily grew up just across the Ohio River from Louisville. An excellent athlete, her interest in physical therapy began as she dealt with a number of injuries throughout her athletic career. In 2007 Emily was named one of the “Top 40” best female athletes in basketball and volleyball by the IHSAA even though she faced recurrent injuries. Oddly enough these persistent reoccurring injuries provided her with a professional vision of what therapy should be, “During my physical therapy rehab, I knew I found something where I could help individuals recover and prevent them from having the outcome that I had.” While earning her bachelor’s of science in Biology at Indiana University Southeast, Emily continued playing basketball and volleyball. However, it was this vision of making patients better that led Emily to earn her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Evansville in 2014, and then return home to follow her passion for Women’s Health and sports rehab working with collegiate athletes and “weekend warriors”. In 2015, Emily became a Board Certified Orthopaedic Certified Specialist (OCS), a certification from the Federation of the State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT), which requires a rigorous residency program. In 2016, Emily transitioned her focus to pelvic pain and dysfunction in male and female patients while continuing to incorporate her orthopedic skills into her patients’ care.
Emily continues her education by working towards becoming a Board Certified Women’s Health Specialist (WCS). She is a member of the Indiana Physical Therapy Association (INAPTA), the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), Section on Women’s Health (SOWH), and of the Orthopaedic Section of the APTA.
Emily is married with a miniature dachshund, Millie. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, and running. She is also an active parishioner and Eucharistic minister at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
