Shalla graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in kinesiology – exercise and movement science. After making a giant excel spreadsheet of dream PT schools across the nation, she decided another 3 years as a Badger was too good to pass up, and received her doctorate of physical therapy from UW-Madison as well. Shalla has always had a passion for being around kids, whether that be as a camp counselor, youth soccer coach, volunteering at Three Gaits (a therapeutic riding center), and in physical therapy. Her therapeutic philosophy is to ensure no one leaves a session without laughing! Previous experience includes pediatric sports rehabilitation, inpatient pediatrics, and amputees. In her free time, she enjoys playing any and all sports, like ultimate frisbee, golf, and tennis! But when the inevitable Wisconsin winters arrive, she does just fine as a couch potato relaxing and watching any food competition show.
