PT, DPT (she/her)
I’m originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, but I fell in love with the Decatur Area while attending Emory University for my BS in Anthropology and Human Biology. After injuring my shoulder competing with the Eagles’ swim team I experienced the positive impact physical therapy made on my life. I returned to my home state to study my new-found passion at California State, Long Beach and discovered a passion for all things pelvic.
I’ve moved back to Atlanta to work at KPP because I believe in their vision of full body integration and holistic care. No one person fits a mold and I strive to tailor my care to each individual. Helping my patients live symptom free and return to LIFE gets me up in the morning and I look forward to meeting you!
When not in the clinic, I enjoy swimming, painting, and hanging out with my husband and our dog Pepper.
PT, DPT, PRPC (she/her)
Laura is passionate about helping everyone with a pelvis. Her special interests are inclusive care for all genders, pelvic pain, sexual health and the intersection of pelvic health and athletic performance. Laura has a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Northwestern University and earned her Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certificate (PRPC) through the Herman and Wallace Institute. She has additional training in PT for concerns specific to trans and gender nonconforming folks including gender affirming surgeries and earned the Certificate in Sexuality Counseling for Pelvic Health Therapists from Pelvic Global. Laura is a member of the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) and WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health).
Prior to becoming a PT Laura was a professional oboist for 10 years playing in studios, symphonies, operas and ballets in Nashville. When not in the clinic, you’ll find her at the gym working out or coaching at the Atlanta Women’s Barbell Club, reading, cooking or spending time in nature. Laura habla español y puede ayudar a clientes en inglés o español.
Client Coordinator (she/her)
Providing amazing customer service is always an essential part of a day’s work for me. If you aren’t smiling when you arrive to our office, I hope to provide a little sunshine to your day! At Kemper Pelvic Phyiso, I am responsible for all office procedures, and I try my best to use my organizational skills to ensure smooth operations in our beautiful and peaceful office! I regularly find myself drawing on my love of writing and communication during the day which is satisfying as a hopeful New York Times Best Seller. Prior to joining KPP, I managed three local MRI practices and dabbled in the financial world. I returned to what I know and love at KPP.
I love living in Decatur and exploring the neighborhood with my husband Denton and our dog Yoshi. We’ve got a little one on the way affectionately nicknamed “Tiger” and I am SO excited to add the title of “Mom” to my repertoire. I look forward to assisting you!
Community and Client Coordinator (she/her)
I am thrilled to join the Kemper Pelvic Physio team as a care coordinator and marketing liaison.
Originally from a small town in Connecticut, I am new to the Atlanta area and I am excited to explore it while providing excellent customer service to all of you! With a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, I look forward to helping you to achieve all of your Physical Therapy goals and finding you, your perfect PT fit!
Prior to moving to Atlanta, I worked as a Nursing Technician on a Trauma Surgery / COVID unit where I learned the importance of taking care of yourself and found my love for patient care and patient success! Out of the office, you can find me playing with my pup Albus, adventuring hiking trails, paddle boarding or cooking up something new in the kitchen! I am so excited to meet you all and I look forward to connecting with you!
Appreciation shared with us…
Help for Pelvic Pain
This is not an easy topic to talk about, but Beth (and later Megan) showed me much kindness and understanding so that I was able to fully express myself and receive treatment that truly made a difference. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone having pelvic floor pain.
Variety of tools for pelvic pain
Fantastic place – very friendly team and my therapist did an amazing job with helping to alleviate the pain and discomfort I was experiencing. She was very knowledgeable and had a vast set of tools and methods that she used to help get me back to normal. I would highly recommend this place!
Professionalism and Genuine Warmth
I was having multiple issues and did not know what to expect but was blown away by the professionalism and genuine warmth. I was put at ease from my 1st phone call ( Thank you, Janice!) to my visits with Dr. Megan. She provided thorough information and answered all of my questions. She created a personal exercise program for me. As a woman of a “certain age” , I know I will be referring some new patients! Thank you for all of your help!
Wish I Could Go Forever
In my experience, physical therapy has a goal of being temporary, something you won’t have to go to forever. But I wish I could! I love the Kemper Pelvic team and will miss my visits with them. You will not regret choosing their services!
Truly has changed my life. I went from being in so much pain I couldn’t clean my home and now I’m going out dancing. I could not be more grateful for the kindness, support, and education they have given me.
“Ran 10 miles today without pain or incontinence. Haven’t hit double digits since ATL half marathon March 2020, which I mostly remember as being a miserable, painful, demoralizing experience. Thank you so much, I am so grateful for your care…”
Life Changing Progress
I am so thankful… The progress we have made in a short time has been life changing. I have never felt so listened to by a provider… Every session was impactful and I made so much progress each time. I wish I had made my first appointment sooner and had not accepted that this was just what happens after having a baby. It was also very easy to file with my insurance and more of the cost was covered than I thought it would be.
Kemper Pelvic Physiotherapy provided what I can easily say is the best physical therapy experience I’ve ever had. The facilities, staff, and treatment provided were all simply impeccable and I would gladly recommend them to anyone.
I am in the medical field so I know good care verses exceptional care first hand. I received exceptional care with Beth. She has a wealth of knowledge that she shares while delivering the best of care! I was referred to Beth from my urogynecologist at Emory. There were other therapists that were good, but Beth was recommended as the best. So I did not hesitate to made an appointment with her. After I completed my recommended therapy, I can honestly say my muscles are stronger and I no longer have any of the prior complaints that I thought only medicine or surgery would cure. It’s been a year now since my last visit and all I have to do now is continue what I learned.
Thank you so much, Beth!
Validation and Trust
THANK YOU so much for validating my symptoms and encouraging me to get screened for endometriosis…all that to say thank you sooooooo much. I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to trust myself more than I can in this very moment. And for that, I cannot thank you enough.
Confident, professional, personable, kind
Megan was my physical therapist and was INCREDIBLE! I was nervous about this process from day 1. I didn’t know if I’d get anything out of it or if I would reach my goals. Megan was confident in her work with me. She had so much knowledge to share and helped me reach my goals. She answered every question I ever had. I never felt uncomfortable working with Megan. She is professional, personable, and very kind.
