Kirsten graduated as a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Samuel Merritt University in 2010. She always knew she wanted to work in sports after being sidelined by a volleyball and softball shoulder injury in college. She began her career in San Jose working for the SF Giants and 49ers team doctor treating professional, collegiate, and a variety of different athletes across all age groups . She also worked in a D1 training room returning athletes from all sports back to play. She has a passion for strength and conditioning and when she met Craig (owner of Loomis Kettlebell) to begin training for a kettlebell certification the idea of a partnership developed. Enter Next Level where physical therapy and sports performance training get to work together in the same gym. When she's not working you can find her fishing, camping, and hiking with her husband and dog.
Kirsten dedicates a good deal of her time to continued learning especially in the fields of sports, performance, and post-operative rehabilitation. She also has a special interest in research and is uniquely specialized in post-concussion care.
