Kim is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from Temple University with her Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree (DPT) in 2012 and has been a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist (OCS) since 2018.  What Kim loves most about being a PT is providing highly individualized hands on interventions, exercise, and education to help clients get back to what they love doing most. Kim prioritizes client understanding. She invests time in client education regarding anatomy and basic kinesiological concepts to ensure that clients understand exactly what is driving their condition and what the plan of action is to ensure that a client meets their goals.

Kim’s practice includes an extensive skill set and passion for data-driven, evidenced based interventions. She is also a certified practitioner in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment, the Functional Movement Screen and Functional Capacity Screen. She has advanced training and extensive experience in Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) using gua sha and cupping therapy. She applies these skills and experience with her clients on a daily basis.

Kim has extensive experience and training in treating patients with chronic pain and central sensitization syndrome and pain complicated by psychological conditions such as PTSD, bipolar disorder and depression. She also has extensive experience in treating teens and adults with scoliosis, Hypermobility syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

She also has years of experience and advanced training in screening for injury risk and sports participation safety with a special interest in screening and rehabilitating teen and preteen dancers. When Kim is not treating clients she enjoys performing yoga, knitting, hiking, fly fishing and spending time with her husband, two daughters, three step children and two black labs.
