Kiri completed her doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2018 at Loma Linda University in Southern California. After graduation, she worked towards completing her Mat Pilates Instructor certification with Balanced Body and translated those skills to her work as a general outpatient orthopedic physical therapist.
After going through pregnancy herself, Kiri recognized a growing need for the use of physical therapy during the prenatal and postpartum recovery process. In 2020, she earned a certification to become a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist. She also continues to take educational courses focusing on women’s health.
Kiri enjoys combining her skills in Pilates and peripartum physical therapy to encourage a strong and efficient recovery for women returning to activity. She emphasizes enhancing core strength, correcting diastasis recti, preventing prenatal/postpartum prolapse, and encouraging proper body mechanics for all that new mothers can encounter.
Outside of the clinic, Kiri loves to be on the move. Her free time consists of spending quality time with her young son and husband, running, wind surfing, and water skiing. She is vegan when she can be and loves to sing!
