During her undergraduate school she spent lots of time in the hospital with her dad who had suffered a traumatic brain injury and watched him get his life back through the amazing rehabilitation process. She was hooked! She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree also from the University of Utah. She started out treating orthopedic patients and soon found a love for treating the pelvis and core due to the impact these areas can have in changing people’s lives for the better. She wanted to learn more attending the Pelvic Floor series from Herman and Wallace and will soon be a certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise specialist through Sara Duvall.
Robyn loves spending time with her family and friends hiking, skiing, biking, golfing, boating and dirt biking or anything else outside in this beautiful area.
