Anika moved to the Pacific Northwest from Minnesota and joined MTI Physical Therapy in the fall of 2013. Anika received her Bachelor of Science in Therapeutic Recreation from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2009. Following graduation, she worked as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, working with adults and kids with disabilities in the outdoor mecca of Bend, Oregon. Working with this population drove Anika to become interested in helping people maximize their function in life.

Subsequently, she returned to the midwest to attend the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN, where she graduated with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2013. In Seattle, she pursued advanced training in manual physical therapy and completed both a residency and fellowship program through the Ola Grimsby Institute (OGI). She became a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists in 2016, and has been a certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist through the American Physical Therapy Association since 2016. Anika now enjoys being a mentor to current residency and fellowship students.

Anika ran cross country at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and continues to enjoy training for various triathlons and running events. Because of this, she has taken a special interest in treating runners. Outside of work, Anika enjoys hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and cross country skiing.
