Personal Bio

I was raised in Wheatland in a physical therapy community, with my mother as a highly recognized physical therapist entrepreneur, serving on the Wyoming State Board of Physical therapy for several years. I grew up in the clinic helping out and developed an overwhelming passion to help people recover and return to their life. After attending undergraduate school at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona for 5 years, I was accepted into the doctoral program at the University of North Dakota, in Grand Forks, ND. Nothing like moving from Phoenix to Grand Forks; temperature shock! My daughter, Syrei, was 7 months old when I moved to ND and I had a son, Grizzly, in my second year of graduate school. These two blessings were the reason I decided to take a job back in Wyoming, as there is no better place to raise children than this beautiful state. I grew up working summers on our family ranch just East of Gillette and wanted to be near my family once again.

My husband, Chad Wernsmann, and I currently enjoy 4-wheeling, paddle boarding, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding at the ranch with our, now 4, children. I love to be outside and am determined to get people back to the things they love to do, whatever it is that may be! Come on in and share your story with me.
