Hours by Appointment

Through her pediatric expertise, Lisa enjoys helping new moms adapt to mothering through instruction on care techniques, positioning, carriers, and sensorimotor activities to promote normal infant development.  She uses these opportunities to educate moms on their own postpartum care. She loves that she can work with both moms and babies simultaneously and has created a unique niche in this area.

 

 

Lisa found her passion for pelvic health after her own journey through post-partum recovery.  Her experience with pelvic rehabilitation was life-changing and opened her eyes to the lack of public awareness about pre- and post-natal physical therapy. Although she was an expert physical therapist in pediatrics with nearly 20 years of experience, she decided to pursue a specialization in pelvic health and became certified in 2017.

Lisa, a graduate of the University of Tennessee, moved to Atlanta in 2004 after starting her career in North Carolina. While she continues to practice in pediatrics part time, she is thrilled to be providing pelvic health physical therapy and advocating for awareness of women’s health. She enjoys treating all types of pelvic floor dysfunction, but has a particular appreciation for pre and post-natal care. She learned from her own rehabilitation experience that this is an area of healthcare that is lacking in education and

access to care.

While still rooting for her favorite Volunteers, Lisa thoroughly enjoys living in East Cobb with her amazingly supportive husband and 3 children.  Lisa and her husband enjoy the many basketball and flag football games, ballet recitals, choir concerts, and musical theater performances that life currently has to offer.   Lisa enjoys spending time with her family, hiking in Georgia’s gorgeous mountains, studying Pilates, and has been a flutist for more than 3 decades. 

Taking a turn in her career path accentuates Lisa’s desire to pursue lifelong learning.  In addition to the certification in pelvic health, Lisa earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2018 from Evidence in Motion Institute of Health Professions. She takes a special interest in each patient and believes in a holistic approach to patient care.  She has found that her specializations in motor control and diaphragm retraining augment a current evidenced based approach to pelvic rehabilitation.  She is always looking for opportunities to teach as well as learn and enjoys assisting in professional development courses and in-services to moms and local businesses.
