MEET YOUR THERAPIST
Kassi enjoys working with active people and athletes, as she herself lives an active lifestyle and is an Olympic Weightlifting athlete. She understands the frustration of having aches/pains or injuries getting in the way of doing the things you love. Kassi wants to help you maintain your active and healthy lifestyle and not miss out on the things you enjoy most.
Kassi grew up in Northeastern Colorado on the family farm where she found her love for basketball shooting hoops in the driveway. Her love for basketball took her to the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where she was a part of the Women's Basketball team and earned her Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration. During her years of sports, she spent a fair amount of time in Physical Therapy rehabbing injuries and thus sparking her interest in pursuing a career as a Physical Therapist.
Kassi moved to Iowa to attend Physical Therapy School at Des Moines University where she graduated with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2014 and was named the Graduate of Distinction. She has been practicing in the area of orthopedics since graduation with specializations in sports rehabilitation and manual therapy. Kassi has worked with professional athletes for the Iowa Wild, I-Cubs, and Iowa Energy (now the Iowa Wolves). She also had the privilege to serve as the Team Physical Therapist for East High School, Lincoln High School, and West Des Moines Valley High School.
Kassi is married to her wife, Aimee, and they have two daughters, Anna and Brittany. They also have 2 dogs, Peyton and Denver, and 1 cat, Oliver. Outside of work, Kassi loves spending time with her family, working out (specifically Olympic Weightlifting), hiking or any outdoor activity, and during football season she never misses a Denver Broncos game (hence the dogs' names).
