Physical Therapist
Certified Orthopaedic Manual Therapist
Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists
*Director of Clinical Education*

Chris started her graduate studies in the field of biochemistry, earning a PhD from Vanderbilt University. After several years in the research world, she decided to change careers, earning her DPT from Belmont University.

A life-long learner, she has continued her post-graduate education through residency and fellowship programs with the Ola Grimsby Institute, a manual therapy and exercise-based curriculum that marries the subcellular detail of her biochemical background with biomechanical and neurophysiologic principles utilized in physical therapy rehabilitation.

Currently, Chris is studying to become a Certified Pilates Instructor, to further expand her treatment repertoire. In the outpatient clinic, she has worked primarily with chronic pain patients. This population can be difficult, as often there are postural and movement pattern changes that resulted from the original injury that last beyond the normal tissue healing. Untangling these changes and optimizing a client’s mobility and strength is a challenge she embraces.

In keeping with her passion for teaching others, Chris has taken on the role of Director of Clinical Education (DCE), working closely with Heather to place physical therapy students who express an interest in doing a clinical affiliation at P3, as well as individuals who are interested in physical therapy as a future career.

In her spare time, Chris likes to stay active, participating in swimming, running, yoga and ice skating, as well as reading and doing word and jigsaw puzzles.
