FOUNDER + CEO
The Dreamer

Married to my highschool sweetheart (also a PT) with 2 beautiful little girls! I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Kentucky in 2012 and began my career with a mixed hospital position of outpatient orthopedics and inpatient rehab/acute care. After the birth of my first child, I transitioned into the nursing home world, working as needed/temp jobs and enjoying the flexibility that provided. A few years later, I was offered a job in Home Health and grew my expertise with the geriatric population, particularly those with cardiopulmonary diseases and vestibular deficits. During this time I discovered my passion towards Women’s Health, began my training in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation, and founded New Mom Guru!

if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy

Why NMG?

I realized how many of my “mom” friends were having similar struggles to mine and that the benefit of home health provided to our aging population completely excluded the needs of new moms! Furthermore, what if new moms could just hop on the computer and receive the care they need from several specialties?! I know how hard it is to be a new mom; the idea of leaving home for anything can be daunting! I love that we can connect with new and expecting mothers to experts without any extra effort on mom’s part….she’s doing enough already!

mission #1

I want to bring awareness to Women’s Health issues…if your husband tore his rotator cuff, he would be immediately referred to a specialist. Birth trauma is no different….whether you have a c-section or vaginal delivery with a tear (grade 2 or higher), you have torn muscles! The healing process is the same, regardless of the region of the body. It blows my mind that this common injury is relatively ignored by many doctors.

mission #2

I think it all starts with the mama. But seriously….by supporting new moms, we are truly helping EVERYBODY! We can create a happier, healthier family unit just by showing up for women during this exciting, but difficult transitional period. 

mission #3

I want to progress the profession of physical therapy. Other healthcare specialties have outpaced us, already providing professional telehealth services. Research shows early access to PT saves not only a ton of money in the healthcare system (helllloooo accurate diagnosis, from the most qualified muskuloskeletal professionals), but also provides better patient outcomes! Everybody wins!

Happy Clients

happy mamas

I am so thankful for New Mom Guru! As a first time mother, I didn’t know what to expect postpartum. Unfortunately, the delivery didn’t go as planned and I had a 4th degree tear. Weeks following the delivery, I was in so much pain. My Doctor recommended physical therapy, but realistically I knew making it to appointments was going to be hard. This is why New Mom Guru was a lifesaver! I was able to have physical therapy from the comfort of my own home. Both PT’s who helped me were also mothers, so I felt like they were able to relate. Not only did they help with pelvic floor exercises, but they genuinely seemed to care about my progress.
