Join the Women
of Vitality

At Vitality, our mission is to help women feel their best during all stages of life. We understand the toll your health can take on your life as moms, managers, wives, grandmothers, volunteers, and friends. This belief serves as the backbone of all of the work we do, which includes helping women with:


  • Pelvic health

  • Orthopedic conditions

  • Neurological conditions

  • Bladder and bowel health

  • Cardiopulmonary conditions

  • Prenatal and postpartum health

Visiting a physical therapist that specializes in women’s health is so personal that you should absolutely know more about who’s going to be treating you.

The Women Behind

Jennifer and Amy met in grad school over 20 years ago and paired together as roommates while pursuing their physical therapy degrees.  While they both admit that living with a stranger had its challenges, they couldn’t be more lucky to have found one another. 

After decades of friendship and supporting each other as they advanced in their profession, added husbands and children-

it only made sense for them to join forces to support other women in the community they have decided to raise their families.


They have come together as business partners to create something new and different. Vitality is more than just a clinic.

It’s a space to empower women to take time to care for themselves.  It's a place to educate and to support the community.  It's a place to improve the quality of their lives

and others.
