Amy graduated with a Masters of Science in physical therapy from the University of Kansas Medical Center and is certified in Active Release Therapy (ART) and Applied Functional Science. She is also a certified running coach.
Amy focuses on prevention and treatment of injury in endurance sports because she knows first hand the frustration and heartbreak of needing to take a break from a beloved sport due to injury.
With the help of physical therapy and ART, Amy has bounced back from a host of running injuries. She recently returned to running after hip surgery with a PR in the half marathon at age…What? We aren’t going to share that!
She has run many marathons including Boston, NYC and Chicago and is slowly dipping her toes into the exciting world of triathlons.
Amy is also owner and coach of Roadrunners of Kansas City, participates in research at local universities studying running related science and speaks at local running clubs, schools and corporations.
Outside of the world of endurance sports, Amy is a mom of three who, much to her chagrin, will not run!
