Alaina is currently a Fellow-in-Training as she completes her fellowship with the North American Institute of Manual Therapy.
Beyond her formal continuing education, Alaina revels in the daily lessons that her patients and her professional role provide her. In the last eleven years, while practicing in Tennessee, Virginia, and Colorado, she has been afforded the opportunity to treat patients ranging in age from 3 months to 103 years with conditions just as diverse. Alaina enjoys treating the spectrum of ages, conditions, and injuries as well as the constant challenge each patient brings.
Having just moved to Colorado Springs from Knoxville, Tennessee, Alaina is busy exploring not only the local scene but also the mountains. When not working or studying, she likes snowboarding, hiking, and going camping, in addition to cooking meals for friends and watching Tennessee football in the company of her two rescue pups, Murphy and Bailey.
