Originally from Detroit, MI, Kirstie graduated with a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Science from Grand Valley State University and went on to earn a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. Kirstie completed her doctoral research project in Power Mobility for Pediatrics with Cerebral Palsy and has a special interest in treating these individuals and working with individuals with power mobility. Following her graduate program, Kirstie went on to complete the PT Solutions Orthopedic Residency Program and pursued specialization and additional coursework in Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy. She is passionate about treating the pelvic floor as she believes this is something most individuals are not as familiar with and can severely impact their quality of life, and she enjoys being able to provide additional education in this area and helping people get back to a more normal life without having to worry about their pelvic floor dysfunction. She also enjoys treating a wide variety of patient ages and diagnoses but has a particular interest in pediatrics, pelvic floor therapy, and sports injuries.
