She received undergraduate degrees in biochemistry, molecular biology, and chemistry with a minor in biology in 2012.
Kelsea has been working with clients of all ages having hand and upper extremity diagnoses since 2014. She has primarily been in the outpatient setting but she has had experience in hospital inpatient, skilled nursing, and assisted living facilities as well. Kelsea believes in understanding what matters most to each client, education and communication, and utilization of anatomy, biomechanics, and manual techniques are key in a successful recovery and therapy experience.
Kelsea has lived and worked in the Waynesville, NC area since 2015 and can’t imagine any other place to raise her family. Outside of work, Kelsea enjoys being outdoors with her husband and 3 girls, kayaking, hiking, church, health and wellness with experience/training in Crossfit, reading, puzzles, and enjoying life.
