We are beyond excited to welcome Dr. Jennifer Hornbaker to the Peak Endurance Team. She specializes in working with gymnast (18+ years experience as a gymnast herself!), runners, and climbers.
Jennifer earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and worked in skilled nursing and outpatient therapy settings before joining Peak Endurance. Prior to becoming a physical therapist, Jennifer taught English as a foreign language to college-bound and university students in Kansas, Tokyo, and Madison and, before that, worked as a freelance writer for lifestyle, business, and wellness magazines. In her freelancing days, she “researched” fitness trends by dabbling in classes from aerial silks and trampoline aerobics to CrossFit. Jennifer holds a master’s in education from the University of Kansas and a bachelor’s in journalism from Iowa State University, where she was a member of the Cyclone gymnastics team. Eighteen years of gymnastics taught Jennifer the skills to serve her clients today: how to fine-tune movement for better outcomes and how to rehab effectively. A decade (plus) of post-gymnastics athletic endeavors has taught her another valuable skill for clients: how to be safe and enjoy the learning curve as a novice. Her favorite part of being a physical therapist is becoming unneeded; helping clients grow their movement knowledge so they can self-direct their activity for lifelong wellness. Outside of PT, Jennifer enjoys soaking up the outdoors with her better half (Justin), spoiling her rambunctious dog (Millie), getting involved in the Madison community, working crosswords over coffee, and honing her subpar rec volleyball moves.
