Emily relocated to Eugene in 2013 from Minnesota to pursue her Physical Therapist Assistant degree at Lane Community College. She is currently working towards a specialization in Pelvic Health and looks forward to future opportunities to continue to learn and grow with the great team here at Staszak Physical Therapy and Wellness Center.
She is passionate about helping others, providing a hands-on approach to her treatment, as well as finding creative solutions to help patients meet their goals. Prior to becoming a PTA Emily has worked in healthcare as a CNA and Home Health Provider for approximately 10 years in a variety of settings. She has built off the knowledge and experience she gained with patient care to provide a welcoming and open space for patients to improve their health and continue to pursue their passions.
In her free time, she enjoys traveling, exploring the PNW especially camping, backpacking, and hiking. At least once a year she tries to head back to Minnesota to see her friends, family, and bake some cookies with her Grandma. She also enjoys gardening, pickling, canning and spending time outdoors with her partner and 2 cats.
