Physical Therapist

Kerry has been practicing Physical Therapy for over 20 years.  Kerry graduated from the College of St. Scholastica with a Master’s Degree and has completed extensive training in pelvic health, manual therapies and orthopedics.  Sisu is a Finnish word meaning grit, tenacity and perseverance; the second wind of the second wind.  Kerry founded Sisu Therapy and Wellness with the vision to empower patients to improve their health and decrease pain- find their own sisu and live their lives to the fullest.

Kerry believes in a holistic approach and treatment is focused on the individual not just the diagnosis.  Treatments may include manual therapies, stabilization training, biofeedback, neuromuscular re-education, visceral mobilization, rehabilitative ultrasound imaging, myofascial therapy and other soft tissue techniques.  Kerry will provide you with tools to continue self- care outside of the clinic.

Kerry is a sought-after speaker and has presented at many physician/provider and therapy symposiums and conferences in several states and has served on several healthcare committees with a goal of improving inpatient and outpatient access to women’s health resources. She has worked with the Center for Victims of Torture and international clinics in both St. Paul and Stillwater to partner with physicians to improve access to services as well as ease of access for immigrant, asylee and refugees in our communities. Kerry also enjoys opportunities for community outreach and has given seminars for ECFE, moms groups, high school athletics and senior groups.

Prior to founding Sisu Therapy and Wellness, Kerry started several pelvic health practices for physician groups, private practices and hospitals in MN, WI and FL.  Practices she has managed have ranked in the top 15% nationally by US World and News Report for time spent with therapist and quality measures.  She also has extensive orthopedic and trauma experience working in private practice and level one trauma centers.

Kerry enjoys spending time with her husband, daughters and her adorable dog. She loves being active–especially running, paddle boarding, water-skiing and just being out on the water.
