I am an Occupational Therapist (OT) specially trained in pelvic floor rehabilitation for all stages of life and a certified pregnancy and postpartum corrective exercise specialist. I founded Vital Pelvic Health and Wellness after working as a pelvic floor therapist for years and realizing the traditional medical model was failing my patients, particularly in preventative education and treatment during pregnancy/postpartum period. I had a dream of creating a clinic that provided preventative education to the community, holistic patient-centered care and treatments that focused on achieving lasting relief by finding the root cause of symptoms and looking at the whole person. People suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction are at a disadvantage in our medical system because most providers don't understand the pelvic floor-they just prescribe kegels. I created VH to change that. I was born and raised in Columbiana, Ohio and have been working as an OT in Youngstown for almost 10 years. When imnot ranting about pelvic floor dysfunction to anyone who will listen, I’m spending time with my husband, two small children and our two rescue dogs; preferably outside or on an adventure in the RV!
