Laura earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Fitness from Central Michigan University in 2000. She went on to earn her Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Degree from the University of Central Arkansas in 2004. It was during her time at UCA that she developed an interest in Women’s Health Physical Therapy, and this has been her passion throughout her 12 year career as a PT.

Laura has taken numerous educational courses focusing on Women’s and Men’s pelvic floor dysfunction, and earned a Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy in 2009. Common diagnosis she treats with a high level of success include urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic pain.
