Grace Lee, MSPT, OCS —
Grace Lee had her first experience with rehabilitation after undergoing knee surgery in college. She found this unique combination of medical science, sports and helping people recover the perfect fit for her interests, and began the journey towards physical therapy as a profession.
As a former collegiate athlete, Grace understands the delicate balance between minimizing recovery time and a safe return to sports and activities after injuries. She utilizes holistic movement evaluations to identify any underlying source for persistent pain and impaired function. Grace has had the privilege of working alongside her clients spanning the lifespan and fitness spectrum to increase their physical capacity and reach their personal goals.
Grace earned her Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy degree from University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in 2001. Prior to graduate school, she studied at the University of Iowa where she graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Biological Sciences. Grace was a four- year full scholarship letterwinner of the University of Iowa’s Division I Women’s Gymnastics Team and earned the team’s MVP award as a freshman.
