Jill Kilkenny, PT, MSPT
Jill graduated with a degree in Biology from Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State University) in 1997. She then went on to attend Washington University in St. Louis where she received her Master of Science in Physical Therapy degree in 1999. Jill relocated to Iowa in 2000 and began working in a small rural hospital where she gained experience working with several types of patients, including acute, long term care, skilled care, home health, and outpatients.
For several years, Jill has enjoyed mentoring physical therapy students both as a clinical instructor and as an adjunct faculty member for the University of Iowa Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, primarily assisting with the Cased Based Learning course taken by first year students. She enjoys both the education of those beginning their professional careers and also feels that education plays an important role when working with patients in any rehabilitation setting.
Over the last several years, her primary focus has been in the area of outpatient orthopedics. She enjoys assisting patients in determining how improper movements and muscle imbalance play a role in pain and injury and developing treatment plans to improve their overall function and reduce the risk of reinjury.
Jill is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and believes this is an important way to promote the profession on both a local and national level.Back to Staff
