Kristen graduated from the University of Florida in 2002 with a Masters in Physical Therapy. She was then commissioned as a US Air Force officer and practiced physical therapy for the military population for over 5 years. During this time she was stationed in NM, then Warner Robins, GA and gained experience in sports and manual therapy. In 2007, Kristen left Active Duty military, entered the Reserves and went on to the Cantrell Center for Physical Therapy located in Warner Robins, GA. Here she gained experience and mentorship in Postural Restoration, as well as enhanced her outpatient orthopedic skills. In 2009, her husband’s job moved her to Bethesda, MD where she worked for Launch Sport Performace. She recently received certification in Postural Restoration and acts as a local consultant in this unique treatment philosophy. Kristen is an avid runner and sports/recreation enthusiast. She and her husband, Evan, have one child, Brayden and, though living in MD, still call Niceville, FL their home.
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.
