Marla completed her Master’s in Physical Therapy at Rockhurst University in 2000. Upon graduation, she began her career at North Kansas City Hospital which provided experience in acute care, inpatient rehab, cardiac PT, and outpatient therapy.  She then transitioned to a specialized focus on outpatient orthopedics. In 2007, her passion for orthopedic therapy inspired her to complete a four-year manual therapy residency and achieve Fellow Status in the American Association of Manual Physical Therapists.

Her curiosity about the connection between the pelvic floor to back and hip pain motivated her to again embark on intensive study. She completed three levels of Herman and Wallace Pelvic Floor training and a nutrition for pelvic floor course. Five years ago, she designed and, through 2021, ran the pelvic floor program for her employer in Overland Park.

In 2022, she joined Foundational Concepts to be surrounded by pelvic floor clinicians to collaborate and help patients achieve their best possible health outcomes. Marla is married with two adult daughters and one granddaughter. She and her husband support area pet rescues and dote on their two adopted German Shepherd girls.  Marla loves camping, nature hikes, and learning foreign languages. She also loves to read and learn about nutrition.
