aboutANGELA

  • PhD Physical Therapy - Oakland University

  • BS Health Science with Minor in Health Science - Oakland University  

As the founder of Renewed Life Physical Therapy, I began my career in Orthopedics focusing on common conditions of the spine, lower extremities and upper extremities. I became the director of an outpatient clinic and began learning the inner-workings  of business management.  After several years, I had an opportunity to explore Geriatric Rehab in a Skilled Nursing Facility.

 

To continue my love of manual therapy, I returned to outpatient with my patients. I truly believes in the healing power of touch. After a volunteer Physical Therapy trip to Haiti, I cultivated relationships with a few colleagues who practiced Women’s Health Therapy. After my first class I knew that this was where I belonged.

 

I'm passionate about educating women about their pelvic health and helping them regain their dignity, free from pain. I believe in treating the whole person and not just focusing on the area of pain. My treatment philosophy includes evidence-based manual therapy, custom exercise prescriptions and comprehensive patient education to aid my clients in achieving their personal goals. 
 

I enjoy my personal time being active. You will often find me biking, kayaking, swimming and enjoying anything outdoors - when the weather allows it in Michigan. I also enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 children, and our pets.
