Physical Therapy Assistant
Jody was born and raised in Oregon. She previously worked in the service industry but knew that she wanted to help people in a larger capacity. Her personal exploration with health and movement brought her to the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Lane Community College, becoming a licensed PTA in 2020. During her clinical rotations she learned the mechanisms of pain, manual therapy techniques and biofeedback technology. She is currently learning to couple the use of Biofeedback technology and trauma treatment; bringing these great skills to Well Balanced. Jody is also in the process of gaining her certification in lymphedema treatment. She is passionate about helping others, wherever they are in their life adventure. As a newly practicing clinician her goal is to learn from her patients and help create space and advocate for all body types in the sphere of movement.
