Every patient has their own story and upbringing and Amanda is grateful to support patients walking through anxiety and depression. With a background in athletic training and having been an athlete herself, she enjoy working in sports medicine as well.
You can generally find Amanda with her friends or family, spending time outdoors, or reading a good book. She credits her successes today to the support of her friends and family so spending time with those people is vital to her. Being outside is also life-giving for Amanda. The outdoor activity changes with the season – skiing, mountain biking, playing ultimate frisbee, or camping. Sharing these passions with her son is one of her greatest joys.
Amanda loves to play, move her body, and get outside, so it’s important she make the daily choices that will allow her to do the things she enjoys most. Amanda also maintains focus on the simple things within her control – sleep, nutrition, stress relief and counseling – which helps her stay active and well balanced. She tends to get injured from time to time with the activities she does, so she is also a big fan of physical therapy.
