Job Physical Therapist / Jade Integrated Health

Lives In Cape Elizabeth

I've always wanted to live in Maine and am happy to have moved here in 2001. I love to be outdoors-hiking, biking (especially to work!), sailing and skiing.  Eating out in Portland is another happy favorite, but oh so many choices!  With 2 kids, we end up at Silly's quite a bit and are never disappointed.

For work, I am a physical therapist and massage therapist.  My practice, Jade Integrated Health, also offers acupuncture, yoga and Yamuna Body Rolling.  We aspire to offer a balanced and holistic approach to medical care.  I spend a lot of time with my patients on education and looking for unique solutions to their health-related issues.

A bridge between work and home life is Dash, our 1 year old Portuguese Water Dog.  She is a true companion at home for all forms of play and exercise.  At work she is our therapy dog, offering tail wags and big brown eyes to our patients and yogis for stress management and good vibes!

Why did you choose Portland? I have always wanted to live and settle down in Maine. My husband and I moved from Austin, Texas and chose Portland because we loved the size and energy of the city for opening our small business, Jade Integrated Health.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Definitely take them out to eat! Two Light Clam Shack, a Sea Dogs game, walking the East End and Back Bay, and the Portland Art Museum all show Portland off nicely.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Portland YMCA. So many choices for exercise, workouts, yoga and wellness.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? Looking at Portland history, how many times Portland has burned to the ground, and continues to come back!

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Coffee, more specifically, mochas. Always from Coffee By Design!

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Deering Oaks Park. A large park that has ducks to feed, ice skating in the winter, a kickin' farmer's market, theater in the park in the summer, tennis courts, baseball field, and sand volleyball court.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? The farmer's market is a great place to see the Portlanders I usually miss around other parts of town.
