Amy was drawn to oncology physical therapy after a dear friend’s struggle with endometrial cancer and has been working in oncology rehab for more than a decade. She is passionate and dedicated to helping others, especially as they navigate the journey from cancer diagnosis to becoming a survivor.
"I strongly believe that physical therapy and rehabilitation is a critical component of cancer care," she says.
When not in the clinic, you can find Amy sailing in the Puget Sound on her 30’ sailboat, travelling internationally or plotting her next trip, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
I am passionate about helping to empower all patients undergoing cancer treatment to minimize treatment related side effects, reduce the risk of cancer recurrence, maintain strength during treatment and restore overall health after treatment with simple lifestyle interventions. Correctly prescribed exercise, activity modifications, or stress reduction techniques can make a huge difference in quality of life for anyone going though cancer treatment. I strive to support and motivate my patients to see themselves as part of their cancer care team, understand their part and take an active role as able to improve their side effects and outcomes.
To schedule a physical therapy appointment, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center patients need to be referred by a Fred Hutch physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. Patients who have secondary lymphedema can be seen at the Fred Hutch clinic by one of our physical therapists specializing in oncology.
