Brauna earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia, in 2017, and has been with Back in Motion Physical Therapy since then.
Previously, Brauna served for 10 years in the active-duty Navy, both as a surface warfare officer and as a public affairs officer. When her children were born, she transitioned to working part-time as a yoga and fitness instructor. Brauna loves working in the fitness industry, but sought physical therapy training to deepen her knowledge and increase her effectiveness in helping others move and feel better.
Brauna is passionate about the physical therapy profession. She has taken advanced education courses in osteoporosis care, pelvic health, and Parkinson’s Disease, and is a certified provider for LSVT Big therapy. She has much more advanced training planned, as she is dedicated to a lifetime of learning and growing as a therapist.
Brauna holds a Master of Arts in English from the University of Maryland in College Park and a Bachelor of Science in English from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. She lives with her husband and two sons in Springfield, Virginia.
