Erika has lived in North Bend since the age of two. After working at a physical therapy clinic while in high school, she knew it would be the perfect fit. She attended Linfield College, graduating in 2005 with her Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences with a minor in Anthropology. In 2008, she received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Eastern Washington University in Spokane. She was eager to return home to our beautiful valley.
She truly loves working in the community in which she lives. With Peak, she is able to volunteer at local races, work with the high school and local gyms. Variety and challenge are what Erika loves most about physical therapy. Taking time to listen to her patients’ goals and working together to create a unique treatment plan is what Erika strives to achieve. She also finds that education is empowering to her patients as it plays an important role in injury prevention.
Outside of the clinic, she loves the beauty and outdoor activities the Snoqualmie Valley has to offer. She especially enjoys hiking with her black lab, Bayley. When she and her husband can break away from home renovation projects, they also enjoy camping and local getaways with their newest addition, Dylan.
