She then was accepted into the Women’s Health Physical Therapy Residency at Loyola University Medical Center in January 2019. Janelle received her ABPTS Board Certification as a Clinical Specialist in Women’s Health Physical Therapy in March 2020. She is thrilled to continue developing her skills and passion in treating the female pelvic population and particularly enjoys specializing in urinary incontinence, dyspareunia, and bladder pain.

Her passion is to continue changing lives and helping women to release their best selves through optimal physical health and wellness.
