a note from me

Hey! Thank you so much for being here. I mean that. I am so grateful you’ve stumbled upon my page. While you’re here, there’s a few things I want you to know. You are a distinctly unique person with wants and needs and desires, and you deserve to live a life that feels good to you. Read that again. Let it sink in.


I was a talented athlete. I understood the things my body was capable of and how to take care of it to perform. And yet, once soccer went away I was left grappling with what health and wellness looked like and felt like for me. It became too easy to ignore some of the signals my body was giving me, and like many of you my health started slipping down the priority list. But the tug to live better continued to reside in my gut. Each one of us has a different relationship with our wellbeing, but if you are feeling that inner nudge, and you’re finally choosing to listen to it then I want to celebrate you. While you’re here we will make a point to celebrate this over and over again because choosing to show up, choosing to live into your power, choosing to prioritize your health and wellness, choosing you is no small thing.


Most of us spend too much time thinking about the things we want to do or should do and we waste away our current moment by imagining ones in the future. We lose out on our present because our minds are somewhere down the road. I used to do this too, but that changed after my mom was diagnosed with cancer. After a particularly hard visit full of bad news and a poor prognosis, my mom and I went for a walk. She said something to me that has changed the entire trajectory of my life, my career, my relationships…She said, “Jules, I wish I would’ve known. I wish I would’ve known how to take care of myself when it mattered.”


Those two sentences that my mom whispered to me are at the heart of everything I do. Since that day I have been on a mission to transform my own life and to help others do the same. Whether it is personal training, physical therapy, health coaching, personal conversations, time with friends…I am constantly striving to make decisions that allow me to be the best version of myself in the current moment. This spills over into every single aspect of my life, the way I live, and the way I love.


I may only be one girl, but I am determined to use my voice and the platforms I am creating to help the whole world feel more alive. We deserve the opportunity to live this life, right now, to the fullest. If you’re struggling to do that, I would love to help you.


Thank you again for being here.



I would tell this little girl she doesn't have to prove anything to be loved.

I would tell this little girl to continue chasing the things that make her smile her squinty-eyed-grin.

I would tell this girl she is making the world a better place just by showing up as herself.

I would tell this girl she is good. She is enough. She is capable.

I'm a Midwest living, sport playing, people loving, mom, doctor of physical therapy, entrepreneur, and wellness coach with dreams of helping the whole world feel more alive.

I would tell this little girl she will know pain and loss, but she will also know love and joy.

I would tell her to feel it all.

I would tell this little girl she has everything she needs to see her dreams become reality.

I would tell this girl she is loved more than she could possibly imagine.

I would tell this girl she is deserving of all the good things this life has given her.

I would tell this little girl to hug her mama every single chance she gets.

I would tell this girl to rest and breathe and soak it all in.

I would tell this girl her mama is so freaking proud.

Physical Therapy

Movement + Mindset + Motivation

Telehealth Physical Therapy

I was one of the first Physical Therapists in this area to venture into this type of treatment. I can help you reduce pain and/or recover from injury from the comfort of your own home.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is what sets my practice apart from other clinics. I have a manual therapy certification, extensive training in the application of manual therapy and years of experience in patient care. 

Therapeutic Exercise

After a thorough evaluation we will create a unique and detailed plan just for you. Therapeutic Exercise is key in getting you back to your life without pain or limitation. While manual therapy is necessary for healing, therapeutic exercise will give you the strength back to return to your every day life.

A holistic approach to healing

I know I can help you get back to the life you love. Learn more about my services, my approach, and what sets me apart.
