Dr. Carpenter obtained her doctorate degree in physical therapy from the University of Colorado, her master's degree in physical therapy from Stanford University, and her undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University. Certified as an orthopedic clinical specialist, Dr. Carpenter has been practicing PT for over 35 years, but she never tires of the challenge of learning and helping each individual patient. Dr. Carpenter was the previous owner/therapist of Back and Conditioning Clinic and was one of the original developers of Fit Physical Therapy. She now sees patients at our Peak location on a limited basis, has a small home practice, and works, along with Dr. Trish McNutt, as a volunteer PT at Inner City Health Clinic. Dr. Carpenter and her husband Marc, a retired dentist, have two daughters, two dogs and a frog. In her spare time, she enjoys outdoor activities, reading and travel.
