Sally, an Anamosa Alumni, graduated from Luther in 1995 and received her Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of Iowa.

As her business took off, Sally and her husband Jamie had their first baby, Emily and her brother Wes, joined the family 2 years later.

On the rare occasion that Sally is not in the office, she is at home helping on the farm, playing with her kids, or working on projects that given enough time, will get completed. In all she does, taking care of her patients is one of her top priorities.
