Becca graduated from Pacific University School of Physical Therapy with her Master’s Degree in physical therapy in 2001, and earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2002. She completed her PhD in Orthopedic Science with an emphasis on women’s health in 2014. Her dissertation topic was overactive bladder in young women.
Becca was originally drawn to a career in physical therapy because of her interest in sports injuries, but discovered pelvic floor physical therapy as a graduate student as has been passionate about this specialty area ever since. Becca specializes in the treatment of female pelvic floor dysfunction, including all types of urinary and fecal incontinence, as well as pelvic pain. She views pelvic PT as an extension of general musculoskeletal PT, and therefore employs a full body evaluation approach to try to get to the root of a client’s issues. Her favorite types of cases are the ones that seem the most complex. She loves to continually educate clients as they progress through physical therapy, because she believes that a full understanding of one’s condition helps a person heal more effectively.
In addition to working in the clinic, Becca is an Associate Professor of Physical Therapy at Pacific University, where she has worked since 2005.
When not in the office, Becca enjoys all types of outdoor activities, especially mountain biking, hiking, and gardening
