Anna graduated from the Univ. of Texas Health Science Center of San Antonio with a Masters degree in Physical Therapy. She has lived and practiced in Keene, NH since 2005, working extensively with musculoskeletal and sports injuries/surgeries primarily in the outpatient setting.
Her special interests include the Mulligan Concept of Manual Therapy, which is the application of manual therapy techniques combined with pain free movements to achieve the restoration of function. Another special interests is sports physical therapy. Anna is a competitive tennis player, ranked 4.0 by US Tennis Association (USTA) standards. She competed in USTA league matches since 2003, mostly in New England and in local tournaments around NH and VT. From this experience, she has a deep perspective in evaluating/treating repetitive and traumatic injuries, and understands the process of return to sports activities. A third special interest, as of recent, she is seeking to pursue a degree in dietetics to further expand her ability to achieve well-being in all patient populations.
In her spare time, she teeters to find a balance to be a mother and wife, as well as knit for creative expression and meditation, practice yoga for flexibility and stability, garden to eat fresh picked vegetable, and bake to satisfy a sweet but nutritious appetite. She manages to squeak in moments to do nothing because she also recognizes the importance of down-time.
