From there Shauna attended physical therapy school at the University of Texas Medical Branch, where she graduated at the top of her class with a M.S. in Physical Therapy.
Shauna has worked in orthopedics since 2008. Her professional interests focus on athletes, rehabilitation for joint surgeries, and patients with alignment problems and muscle imbalances. Shauna is certified in Functional Capacity Evaluations.
Shauna met her husband while in school at Texas A&M. It was always their dream of opening their own practice to be able to help people. She enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming, travel, and reading a good book.
"I enjoy helping people learn how to help themselves. Often times showing patients how to tweak small activities can produce a lifetime of results. I also enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out what exactly is causing a patient's pain and find a way to help resolve it. Personalizing a treatment plan for a specific patient can be very challenging and rewarding."
