After graduating from the University of Colorado physical therapy school, she practiced in Switzerland for seven years, working with pioneering therapists using the ball. In 1980, while working at the University Orthopedic Hospital in Copenhagen, Denmark, she began lecturing on the therapeutic uses of the Swiss Ball. Since returning to the United States in the early 1980s, she has taught at the University of Colorado Physical Therapy School, practiced as a physical therapist in various orthopedic and neurological settings, and has continued to lecture extensively in her area of expertise.
