Karina graduated from Marquette University with her Bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology followed by her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Following school, Karina spent her first few years as a Physical Therapist at an outpatient clinic in Colorado. She was ultimately drawn back to the Milwaukee area and is happy to be back continuing her career here. Karina loves the outpatient orthopedic setting as she enjoys treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal diagnoses and the ability to get to know and treat her patients through their entire plan of care.
Karina utilizes manual therapy and exercise to improve patient mobility and restore function. Her treatment style includes patient centered care with an emphasis on improving functional movement patterns, postural stability, and strength to get patients back to what they like to do. Karina is passionate about improving her patient’s quality of life and helping them reach their personal goals.
Karina has taken several continuing education courses and is always working to grow her knowledge and skill set. She has experience in vestibular rehabilitation, temporomandibular disorder (TMD) therapy, and a certification in dry needling.
In her free time, Karina enjoys running, traveling and hiking, recreational sports, and exploring new breweries and restaurants in the Milwaukee area.
