About Nancy

Nancy is a graduate of University of Colorado Health Sciences Physical Therapy Program in 1999. Since graduation, she has focused on improving her treatment skills through the IPA, completing the CFMT in 2003 and becoming a fellow for two years in Steamboat. She teaches Functional Gait around the country for IPA and assists in teaching other courses.

Nancy opened her clinic, Functional Physical Therapy, in Denver, CO in January 2009 and specializes in chronic dysfunctions, pelvic dysfunctions (especially involving the coccyx), training movement, and integrating the whole body in recovery. She uses the IPA approach of integrating three areas of treatment: addressing the mechanical dysfunctions (which include joint, soft tissue, and neural mobility), neuromuscular dysfunctions (can you access the effective muscles for movement and stability), and motor control (do you use these muscles in your activities).

Before becoming a PT, Nancy taught skiing in Steamboat Springs for 15 years, becoming fully certified in alpine skiing. This experience enhanced her love of biomechanics of movement and how alignment plays a part in performance. She continues to love sports and treats many athletes to help them achieve their goals. Nancy loves to ride horses, especially dressage, and teaches clinics that help riders with the biomechanics and effective posture to help improve their riding. She lives in Boulder with her husband, Ken, two horses, Calisto and Finn, and 3 cats.
