Core Values

Putting my best foot forward, working hard, setting goals for myself, being an honest and trustworthy person.

“Put on your RED DRESS and GET MOVING!”

I’m a physical therapist who specializes in Graston Technique and Vestibular Therapy services. Something patients have to deal with that I want to fix is feeling discouraged and motivating them to get better. Also, I want to help with any limitations of managed care and supporting causes to promote universal healthcare.

I like working here because of the caring and family-oriented atmosphere, the ability to balance work and personal life, the uniqueness and utilization of Pilates method and equipment, and the ability to work one one-on-one with clients.

What is Donna Reading, Watching, or Listening to?

  • Documentaries about natural history, nature, or history (TV Shows)
  • Bridesmaids (Movie)

Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, my “insane” collection of houseplants, my fur babies, (mostly rescues except for my chihuahua, Snoopy who has been my steady companion for the past 16 years), doing jigsaw puzzles that would make the average person cry, sinking into a great documentary, traveling around the country and abroad with my husband and children, especially the western USA (I love the desert!), kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, hiking, nature walks especially for bird and wild animal siting, exercising to a great Latin dance routine, listening to all kinds of music (especially the oldies), and my new role as “Grandma!”

It is our pleasure to recommend your entire staff but especially your physical therapist Donna. She worked with both my husband John and I for separate injuries and we found her to be very professional. She was a very nice person, sociable and a dedicated therapist. She worked with us for a complete hour, always being sure that we were doing our exercises correctly. She was always focused on us and never distracted. I am having rotator cuff surgery soon and will definitely be back to do my physical therapy with Donna as soon as the doctor clears me to start – Mary Ann K
