Experience

After graduating from UND, Nicole spent her first two years as a traveling Physical Therapist. She traveled coast to coast and practiced inpatient, outpatient, short-term rehab, long-term care, home health, and aquatic therapy. Despite the diversity of settings, Nicole always found herself gravitating back to outpatient rehab.

Nicole is certified in upper extremity and lower extremity Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) and has had the opportunity to work with professional athletes using this hands-on technique. She is the only certified MAT Specialist in North Dakota and is excited to bring a new and effective technique to the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Personal

“I was born and raised in Moorhead, MN and am so excited to establish roots back in the Fargo-Moorhead area. I began having sports-related injuries at the age of 8 which required me to go to Physical Therapy. It was then that I found my true passion and mission in life which is to help people achieve and surpass their mobility goals with compassion, motivation and understanding. In my free time, I enjoy all things outdoors – camping, hunting, skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, sports and spending time with family and friends.”
