Therapy degree from Regis University in 2015 with Alpha Sigma Nu honors. She loves to work
with patients and athletes of all ages, helping them understand their treatment plan and how it

their own bodies and get back to doing the things they love while addressing the root cause of
their problems and preventing recurrences. Liz enjoys treating all orthopedic conditions but
particularly the shoulder. She is also skilled at treating hypermobile individuals and athletes
seeking a quick but safe return to sports. She has a keen eye for adverse movement patterns
and uses a hands-on and detailed approach.
Liz also works with local swim clubs on injury prevention programs and technique optimization.
Before working as a physical therapist, Liz studied at Stanford University, and competed on the
swim team, achieving two 2nd place individual NCAA Div. 1 finishes. She also competed in
national and international competitions, including three Olympic Trials and World University

mountain biking, skiing, camping, and backpacking with her husband Nick.
