Tracy has dreamed of owning her own clinic since receiving her Master's Degree in Physical Therapy at the University of Findlay. She has been working in various positions in physical therapy for over 22 years. Her career first began with a strong emphasis in orthopedic and sports physical therapy but evolved into women's health in 2003. After a few years of experience, she expanded women's health treatment to include the treatment of men. Tracy has really found her niche in this specialized market having practiced in Valparaiso for over 13 years. Her leadership and knowledge have led to her serving as a teaching assistant for pelvic floor education courses, pregnancy courses and treatment of the sacroliliac joint. The IN chapter of the APTA awarded her with the outstanding leader award in 2009. Tracy is certified in providing dry needling treatment to her patients. The most recent certification she obtained as a running gait analyst was prompted by her love of running and belonging to a running group. Tracy takes a lot of continuing education coursework due to her love of learning and striving to provide her patients with the best treatment. In her free time, she enjoys running, yoga, exercise, reading and travelling. She has visited more than 13 countries including her most recent trip to the Holy Land. While there she had the honor of teaching a course to physical therapists and physical therapy students at Bethlehem University. Finding that free time is difficult as she is often found watching her two boys play baseball, soccer, hockey and running track or country.
