Athletic & Training Background

Casey was a three sport (soccer, basketball, softball) varsity level athlete in high school. In college, she participated in recreational running including 5k, 10k, and half-marathons with strength training on the side. Always quickly bored with traditional strengthening programs, she tried CrossFit and immediately enjoyed the process of skill development along with the strength and cardiovascular challenge. It is the constant potential for growth that keeps her training.Current Role Working with AthletesCasey is dual employed as a physical therapist at a South Burlington Physical Therapy and a CrossFit Trainer at Threshold Training. At both facilities, she works with athletes of any age, sport, or recreational activity with a focus on integrating rehabilitation into their current exercise program. She began actively coaching CrossFit while simultaneously completing her physical therapy education, which provided Casey with a unique perspective on the musculoskeletal and metabolic demands of barbell and bodyweight movements. Her specialty is skill development, enhancement and efficiency of Olympic lifting and gymnastic movements and she continues to expand her knowledge on mechanics for running, golf, hockey, and swimming.

Professional Philosophy

Rehabilitation and training should not be separate entities but rather intertwined within an universal program. As a clinician, Casey strives to integrate rehabilitation and injury reduction goals within an athlete's established training plan and daily routine. Her approach combines manual and exercise based interventions along with active correction and education regarding an athlete's present movement patterns in order correct postural abnormalities and faulty mechanics for enhanced performance, reduction of injury risk, and return to action.A
