LaNita wants to help each individual achieve their highest level of function, independence, and quality of life through their rehabilitation program.

LaNita grew up in Brainerd, MN, and attended the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks to pursue a degree in physical therapy. She is certified in LSVT BIG, which helps those with Parkinson’s disease, and is also certified in Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Level 1 and Level 2A. She appreciates her supportive coworkers and the opportunities to pursue additional education that benefit her patients.

While in high school, LaNita was inspired to pursue a career in physical therapy. After having knee surgery, followed by physical therapy, she returned to playing sports and wanted to help others do the same. She officially joined the GRHS Therapy Services team in 2012. When LaNita is not at work, she loves going kayaking and fishing.
