Emily graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA in 2011 with a bachelors in psychology and minor in cognition and neuroscience. After working in clinical research with multiple sclerosis for several years, she earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Columbia University in New York, NY in 2018. She later completed an orthopedic residency with the George Washington and Johns Hopkins Hospital residency program in Baltimore, MD where she received advanced training and mentorship in all orthopedic injuries and conditions. During residency, Emily developed an affinity for working with chronic pain and spine conditions. At this time, she also served as adjunct faculty at George Washington University’s department of physical therapy.
Throughout residency, Emily worked closely with pelvic health therapists, and she began to develop an interest in the pelvic floor and its role in orthopedic conditions, especially in postpartum women. This encouraged her to take additional coursework on pelvic health, spanning from incontinence and prolapse to pelvic pain, constipation, and pregnancy. Emily is a board certified specialist in orthopedics, and is dry needling certified.
Emily lives in Northern VA with her amazing husband, and loves to stay active with hiking and swimming. You’ll find her reading about the lives of the saints, watching Formula 1 racing, and trying to keep up with her nieces and nephews.
