About me

Kristi received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University in Houston, TX, and has a post-graduate specialty in infant development with a focus on torticollis, plagiocephaly (head flattening), motor milestones, tethered oral tissues, and breastfeeding as it relates to the infant. While practicing pediatric physical therapy, she quickly came to love working with babies and their parents. She has a true passion for helping parents realize what their babies are capable of. Both of her parents were teachers, and she’s worked with children and families her entire adult life as a nanny, daycare teacher, elementary school tutor, and camp counselor. As a PT, she prioritizes what is important to the family to help babies achieve a strong foundation for successful life-long development.
