Michelle received her Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry from the University of Washington in 2014. Upon
graduating, she explored the field of healthcare and fell in love with physical therapy. She went on to
earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy as valedictorian from Franklin Pierce University in Goodyear,
Arizona in 2019. As a native Washingtonian, Michelle decided to move back to Seattle where she joined
MTI Physical Therapy in 2019. She is in the process of pursuing further training through the Ola Grimsby
Institute’s orthopedic manual therapy residency program.

Michelle enjoys treating patients who are working hard to get back to the activities they love and has a
special interest in working with tactical athletes. As a former patient of physical therapy, she recognizes
the importance of the patient’s active role in their rehabilitation and considers their personal goals,
using this input to create an individualized plan of care. She looks at the body as a whole, utilizing
different treatment techniques and approaches to ensure optimal care.

In her free time, Michelle can be found playing in soccer and volleyball leagues around the Seattle area.
