Meet The Team
Peak Endurance Physical Therapy
Spencer Agnew, PT, DPT
Founder of Peak Endurance | Physical Therapist | and Performance Coach
Taylor DeMars, PT, DPT
Taylor was destined for a life committed to movement as the daughter of a basketball coach father and marathon-running mom. Her childhood was spent in the gym or participating in other athletic pursuits. That love of sport followed her to college where she played basketball at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. In grad school, while pursuing her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Minnesota, Taylor fell in love with running and yoga. Since then, she has obtained her Certified Yoga Teacher certificate and completed dozens of marathons and half marathons.
Since graduating, Taylor has worked in a sports medicine environment, treating athletes of all ages and athletic aspirations. She has a passion for treating what she considers an underserved population: pre and post-partum female athletes. Pelvic floor and other childbirth-related issues afflict so many women, and it’s important that they receive proper medical care.
Taylor now enjoys running with her husband (Matt), dog (Hooper—like we said, she comes from a basketball family), and pushing their two kiddos (Eli and Dylan). She continues to enjoy teaching and practicing yoga, traveling, and spending time outdoors.
Taylor’s goal as your physical therapist is to meet you where you are at while working with you to achieve your desired lifestyle and fitness goals. She wants to set you up for a lifetime of movement; your goals might change over time, but movement is imperative to living a well and healthful life.

Jennifer Hornbaker, PT, DPT
Erienne Lauersdorf, DPT
Erienne grew up in a small farm town in Wisconsin, the youngest of 5 in a very athletic family. She was born to compete from the get-go. She grew up playing multiple different sports (volleyball, basketball, softball, soccer) but ended up playing DII volleyball at Concordia – St. Paul in Minnesota. Erienne knew that she wanted to go into healthcare out of undergrad. What stuck out about physical therapy to her was the amount of time you get to spend with your clients and the real important functional changes that can be made in an individual’s life. She received her doctorate of physical therapy from Concordia University – Wisconsin. Then she returned to the twin cities and worked at an outpatient orthopedic setting for 3 years. Erienne then spent the next 2 years as a general manager, coach, personal trainer, and physical therapist at a CrossFit gym. This is where she found her true calling and hasn’t looked back. Any client motivated to make a real change in their function and fitness is a client That she wants walking through the door!
When not in the clinic, she enjoys working out, beating her husband in cribbage, adoring their beautiful new daughter, Presley, and corralling their dog, Bart, and cat, Leroy (yes, after Bart Starr and Leroy Butler. Go Pack, Go).

Morgan has been a runner ever since she realized she could beat the boys in the middle school mile. After running cross country in track throughout high school, Morgan continued her running career at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire while earning her bachelor’s degree in Behavior Analysis. Morgan graduated in 2020 and moved to Madison where she decided to continue her competitive running by joining the Wisconsin Runner Racing Team. She loves running on the Ice Age Trail and running with college friends when she can.
In addition to working as the Patient Care Coordinator, Morgan also slings shoes at Movin’ Shoes a few hours a week. She enjoys helping people find the right shoe for them and is passionate about helping the Madison running community. When not running or working, Morgan can be found biking the many Madison trails, hanging out in her hammock with a good book, or playing with her two cats (Po & Reyna) & 3 guinea pigs (Nora, Poppy & Muffin). Morgan also loves to travel with her partner and running coach (Thomas) and loves to be outdoors whenever she can be.
Morgan is really excited about working with Spencer, Taylor and Jennifer as well as helping new clients feel welcomed and excited about physical therapy.
