“Physical therapy has restored my own body to doing the things I love to do many times after sports injuries and age related pains. Having benefited so much from physical therapy, I wanted to give dogs and cats the best life possible. With this personal desire to help my patients I pursued an advanced education to become certified by the University of Tennessee in canine rehabilitation (CCRP). I am proud to be the only veterinarian in Kansas City with this certification. I also became certified as a veterinary pain practitioner (CVPP) so that we can handle all forms of pain. At the Ark Pain Center I am the team leader of a wonderful group of experienced, trained and caring individuals who all have a desire to get your pet back to doing the things they love to do.”

“As an arthritis sufferer myself, I understand the importance of activity in how well I feel. I want our dogs and cats to feel their best and play like they are supposed to. I am a Registered Veterinary Technician pursuing my advanced rehab training thru the Canine Rehabilitation Institute from Colorado State. I believe in preventative medicine to give our pets an active, pain free life. It is a great joy to see a patient running and playing again.”

“I love the one-on-one, hands-on caring for pets. My training as a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) and Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) gives me the training I need to help pets achieve a higher quality of life. Rehabilitation of pets requires a lot of creativity and is so rewarding to see them do something they haven’t been able to do. A dog smiles when it completes a challenging exercise.”
