THERAPY STAFF

CHRISSY MACHIELSON

PT, DPT, Sr. Therapist

BIO:

I injured my ankle while playing sports in high school and my athletic trainer discussed with me becoming a physical therapist. Since I didn’t know exactly what that was, I shadowed a local therapist and saw what they did and was hooked on how dynamic a job it was, and enjoyed watching patients improve and get back to their normal activities.

The best part of my job is helping people get better, working with my patients, and learning about their lives/families. I also enjoy how active our job is and working with my staff.

Fun fact about me, I have 6 brothers, no sisters! Also, I collect board games, and currently have over 300!

DANNY BECKER

PT, DPT

BIO:

I became a PT in order to help others achieve their goals so that they can return to doing what they love.

My favorite part about my job is seeing people progress and achieve their goals when often times they never thought they would do some of those things again.

Interesting (and expensive) fact about me, I drink about 3 gallons of milk a week by myself.

JENSEN KEFFABER

PTA

BIO:

I have always had a passion for helping people and was hopeful to find a career where I could really make a difference. I ended up receiving PT for an injury several years ago and was impressed with the care I was given. After that I started researching the PT field and decided to pursue a career as a Physical Therapist Assistant.

The best part of my job is meeting new people and working with some incredible co-workers.

Outside of work, for most of the year, I teach dance to middle/high schoolers in the evenings at a local dance studio!

AUSTIN HOUSE

PT, DPT

BIO:

I became a Physical Therapist to help people live their best lives possible.

The best part of my job is working as a team and laughing with my co-workers.

Fun fact about me, I used to break-dance competitively!

KYLEE SPARKS

PTA

BIO:

I became a Physical Therapist Assistant because my father needed PT back in the day and is the one who sparked my interest! I did some research on the job and thought it would be a good fit!

The best part of my job is seeing people progress and watching them light up when they do something they could not do before.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors including kayaking, walks, or just sitting around the fire with my family, friends, and dog.
