Meryl brings a sports medicine approach to her treatment. She has been in the health/wellness industry since 2012 as running her own business as a health coach and personal trainer certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She was drawn to physical therapy when she had a series of running injuries while training for a series of long-distance races. Whether training for a walk around the block or a 25k, she knows that each person is on their own journey with their body and is happy to meet them wherever that may be.
Meryl rowed crew and played soccer at the collegiate level at Trinity College in Hartford, CT and played soccer abroad at Oxford University in England. She has played tennis, run cross country and track, and has the first-person experience and knowledge of what athletes need to achieve their optimal performance. In addition to helping athletes, Meryl is a mother of two children and loves to help new mothers acclimate to their new bodies and lives after childbirth. Whether trying to reestablish a relationship with an old workout routine or finding a new way to move a postpartum, she understands the struggles new moms encounter. From the soccer pitch to playing with your kids, Meryl understands that there are specific needs for each movement and activity in your life.
Between soccer, running, and postpartum injuries that she has suffered herself, she has developed a focus on hip and pelvis, though she admittedly loves a good challenge no matter the body part.
These days Meryl enjoys forcing her children outdoors, skiing (as long as it’s not too cold), playing soccer, and taking any moment she can escape for a jog in the PNW rain.
