Emily has a special interest in treating musculoskeletal and orthopedic injuries, sports rehabilitation, and chronic pain conditions.  She joins the South Burlington Physical Therapy teams from the Upper Valley in NH, where she has gained 3 years of clinical experience at an outpatient private practice, working with individuals of all ages and a wide variety of clinical diagnoses. She recently completed her post-doctoral Orthopedic Residency at Arcadia University in 2018, and she is a board-certified orthopedic specialist (OCS) by the Board of American Physical Therapy Specialties. In addition to her physical therapy training, Emily also has a background in strength and conditioning. 

While at UVM as an undergraduate, Emily was a four-year member of the UVM Varsity Women’s Soccer team and experienced firsthand the benefits of physical therapy following an ACL injury.  Her experience in physical therapy, passion for athletics, and interest in strength/performance training inspired her to pursue her interest in rehabilitation science. She enjoys utilizing an evidence-based treatment approach and a combination of manual therapy and exercise to help her patients reach their goals.
