Elisa was born and raised in Nebraska and recently moved back to the Black Hills. After graduating from Black Hills State University with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science, she went to Physical Therapist Assistant school in Cheyenne, WY at Laramie Community Collage . After school Elisa has enjoyed working in several states including Wyoming, Kentucky and South Dakota.
Elisa has attended continued education in many areas but her main focus and enjoyment is in manual therapy techniques and innovative exercises in order to help her patients progress to recovery and pain free activities faster and with better results.
“I enjoy pushing the patient to be better, stronger, and being able to achieve more than they thought they could whether it be strength or pain relief. Seeing a patient do something in PT that they never thought they could or that they haven’t done in years truly puts a smile on my face.”
Outside of the clinic Elisa enjoys hiking, snowmobiling, racquetball and time with her husband and German shepherd.
