Val, a native of Brigham City, has been involved in physical therapy for over 15 years. Her initial foray involved managing the business and front office, but necessity required her to return to school and obtain her PTA degree Pima Medical Institute, AZ (2013). Val has trained with an extensive number of outstanding PTs and has even had the opportunity to assist in the rehabilitation of NFL and MLB athletes. Most recently, Val has been able to not only utilize her skills in providing quality care, but also managing the insurance and financial aspects of out-patient PT.

When educating her patients at the bedside, Val often correlates their rehabilitation to the painting process and the layers and steps that skilled care and patient home programs combined in harmony to create a “masterpiece”. In her younger days, Val was a scholarship track athlete at Weber State and even a brief time as a stunt woman in Hollywood!
Currently much of Val’s free time is spent loving and spoiling her 9 children and 3 grandchildren. Getting her hands dirty gardening and painting and when indoors playing Animal Crossing all help her wind down after a busy day inpatient care.
