Jennifer has 19 years of physical therapy experience and has worked in various facilities across the country
from Honolulu to Alaska to San Diego. She has enjoyed helping patients in multiple settings including the
hospital, neuro rehabilitation, wound care center and in home health. Although she loves all of these areas,
her real passion is in the outpatient clinic working in the women’s health setting. She specializes in pelvic floor
dysfunction and manual therapy.
“There are so many women in our society who have pelvic floor dysfunction who don’t know there are
options to help them,” she said. “Assisting women to be more comfortable, more confident and achieve more
happiness in their daily lives is a passion for me.”
When she is not working with patients at the clinic, you can find Jennifer kiteboarding on the Columbia River,
rock climbing at Smith Rock or skiing the summit of Mt. Bachelor.
After graduating from New York University in 2013 with her doctorate in physical therapy, Nicole focused on
orthopedics and sports medicine. As a certified strength and conditioning specialist and active member of the
orthopedic section of the American Physical Therapy Association, Nicole uses a blend of manual therapy and
therapeutic exercise prescription to achieve the functional goals of her patients.
“Physical therapy is about feeling empowered,” she said. “My passion is patient-centered care, working
together to achieve the goals that will carry over to the passions they have outside of the clinic.”
In her free time, Nicole loves to spend time with her husband and daughter, as well as ski, cook, travel and root for
her native Boston sports teams.

Laura graduated from Regis University in Denver in 2013 with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy, after years preparing for this dream as a personal trainer, yoga teacher and ski instructor. Laura is dedicated to educating her patients about how they can take better care of their bodies and help them return to doing what they love in their lives. Laura has taken continuing education in spinal and hip care, ribcage dysfunction, running biomechanics, yoga injuries, and most recently honed her skills for women’s health physical therapy. Laura has developed a strong passion for treating a variety of women’s health conditions, such as incontinence and pelvic pain, but is most passionate about caring for her pre and post-natal patients after the challenging birth of her daughter Jasper in 2015.
“I want to be part of a healthcare team that empowers women to have the knowledge and tools they need to take care of their bodies across their lifespan, especially during pregnancy and post-partum when we experience such dramatic physiological changes in such a short space of time. My hope is that more and more mothers will feel empowered to take care of themselves in this intense period of life when we are designed to take care of others with all we have”.
Laura, who adventured across the ocean from her native home in Australia in her early 20s to travel and ski “real mountains”, now calls Bend her home with her husband, 2 year old little girl and dog Aly. In her free time Laura enjoys reading, journaling, practicing yoga and most of all being active in our beautiful outdoor playground trail running, skiing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, camping, hiking and surfing the Oregon coast with her family.
