Elaina first became interested in physical therapy through her many years of cheerleading and gymnastics. Her interest led to a passion when she learned the role of the physical therapist in a patient’s recovery. Following her dreams, Elaina pursued a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology at Arizona State University in 2017. She went on to receive her doctorate in physical therapy from Franklin Pierce University in 2021. She believes in incorporating patient specific interests into treatment plans to create the best physical therapy experience. Elaina is an Arizona native who recently relocated to the Seattle area and welcomes any sightseeing suggestions! In her free time, she enjoys hiking, yoga, and kayaking through the Puget Sound.
