“I learned to use gait as a tool to assess so many different things going on in the body. I now have not only a good understanding of the foot and ankle, but how that relates all the way up and down the kinetic chain. No matter who you’re working with, being able to assess how they walk gives you so much information. I feel like a more well-rounded clinician now.”

Now, as an expert in human movement, she strives to educate her clients on the correlation between body mechanics and pain, give them the tools for self management, and get them back to fearless movement.
Dr. Simon attended Walsh University where she played collegiate softball and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. She then went on to pursue her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at The Ohio State University. After working as a clinician in a busy outpatient clinic, she knew she could do more to help people but needed a different environment.

This is where she currently provides in person treatments along with virtual consultations for Gait Happens.
