Occupational Therapist, Owner
Mindy graduated from Loma Linda University in 2000. Her mother is an Occupational Therapist as well and thus Mindy knew at a very early age that she wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Mindy was born right here in Sandpoint. She had an amazing childhood- always outside with a dog or two in tow on Pine St. Loop! Her passion was to return to her roots with a purpose to serve the community of Northern Idaho. “Part of my heart is right here in this tiny town & with these beautiful and kind people!” Her husband, 3 children, & dogs relocated here from Kauai, Hawaii & built a home right in town & are loving having seasons for the first time ever!
“I have had the opportunity from being on a small island to learn how to be an Occupational Therapist in just about every area of OT. I have history working in home health, out patient services, as well as with special needs children at Easter Seals as well as with the state of Hawaii Department of Education.”
My core values are: Compassion, Flexibility, Respect, Having Faith, Hope, & Perseverance.
“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo
I specialize in treating pain, injury, & weakness. I love to work on shoulder pain, stroke rehab, hand pain/weakness, and overall balance. I want my patients to know there is hope!
The best part about working at Kauai Therapy & Wellness is being in a team family like environment. A place where not just the staff are considered family but the patients too.
When I’m not working I love to hike with my dogs, paddle boarding, mountain bike riding, snow shoeing, lots & lots of Yoga, and more!
