Crystal’s current areas of interest include treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal and orthopedic injuries spanning from post-operative care to acute injuries and chronic pain conditions. After participating on the University of Vermont’s freestyle snowboard team for 4 years, she has a unique interest in treating action sport injuries related to skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, hiking and mountain biking. She also enjoys treating vestibular, balance and vertigo issues; post-stroke recovery; multiple sclerosis; Parkinson’s disease and other neurologic injuries. She always prioritizes helping patient’s reach their goals at whatever age they are—whether it’s preventing a future injury from occurring during sports training, completing a first half marathon, or maintaining strength and balance to avoid falls in the home.

Crystal has lived in the Greater Burlington area for 8 years. Over the last 3 years, she has gained clinical training in inpatient and outpatient clinics spanning across the country from Denver CO, Boston MA, and locally in Richmond and Hinesburg VT. She is trained in Integrative Dry Needling which she uses frequently to assist with her treatments. She plans to become a board-certified orthopedic specialist in the coming years. When not treating in the clinic, you can find her running on the Burlington bike path with her black lab, snowboarding or split boarding in the mountains with her husband Marc, skateboarding at the Burlington skatepark, and participating in Orange Theory Fitness classes for fun!
