the life I'm building.
I'm so glad you're here.
I am a lot of things, and I want to share so many of them with you. But if you found yourself here you may be most interested to know I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Wellness Coach with a love for empowering individuals to take care of their health. As a wife, mother of two, and someone who loves her job, I understand how easy it is to lose track of your health and well-being. Never was this more clear than when I had to watch my mom pass away to a very preventable cancer. This is an experience you’ll hear me share about a lot. I channeled the pain of losing my mother and allowed it to guide me to my passion and now my work: to help inspire, motivate and educate individuals on how to take care of their health and live the life they deserve.
I attended the University of Evansville where I was the center midfielder for the Purple Aces Women’s Soccer team. I received my Bachelor of Science in Movement Science from the University of Evansville in 2009 and later earned my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Evansville in 2011. I then pursued an aggressive continuing education path, and graduated from a year-long orthopedic residency program. I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist as recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association and am also a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist. Basically I went to school for a long time to learn as much as I could about how to help our bodies function best and now I make a living sharing that knowledge with all of you! And I love it!
My last name is not FitSmith, and Fit is not my middle name. All of my favorite people call me Jules.
I could list every muscle in your body, but don't ask me to read a map. I will get us lost.
I eat, write, and play ping pong with my left hand, but I do everything else with my right hand.
I love people so much, but I will never not laugh out loud at videos of people falling and wiping out.
I'm all about
Full Body Yes
A good cup of coffee and a warm blanket
Early morning walks and runs
Evenings outside with my kids
Margaritas, chips, and salsa
Signs from the universe and my mom
Verbal directions using N, S, E, W
