Betsy is currently a physical therapist and Clinic Director at ATI PT in Everett, formerly known as Olympic Physical Therapy.

In addition to patient care, clinical mentoring and managing her clinic, she is also a faculty member at the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine, teaching orthopedic assessment to acupuncture and oriental medicine students. Her goal as a PT is to connect on a personal level with her patients and help them optimize their long term functional goals and outcomes, in addition to addressing short term symptom resolution. She is a lifetime learner, enjoying specialized advanced techniques to help change patient’s lives. Betsy has been a Professional Ski Instructor for 30 years and has been an Official Medical Provider with the US Ski and Snowboard Teams since 2006, which allows her to blend her passions for both physical therapy and alpine skiing.

When she is not skiing or working, she also enjoys kiteboarding, paddle boarding, mountain biking, road cycling, and world travel.
The Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) is built around 30 years of clinical practice associated with recurring successes of specific patient treatment programs. We established reproducible, outcome-based programs based on consistent evidence-based correlations, discovered with patient biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional patterns and limitations. My passion for the integrated systems of the body has resulted in an examination and intervention process of the asymmetrical human body called Postural Restoration.
