Lisa received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. She was born in New Mexico and relocated to Denver to pursue a Bachelor of Arts at Regis University. Lisa’s yoga practice inspired an interest in the “medicine of movement,” and ultimately led to her passion and life’s work in Physical Therapy.
