Shannon Siert, Pt, DPT, rdn
Doctor of Physical Therapy | Dietician
Shannon is a physical therapist and dietitian. She is originally from Omaha, Nebraska and received her undergraduate degree in nutrition and dietetics at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, and her doctorate of physical therapy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She moved out to the PNW in 2021 to complete a dietetic internship through Oregon State University, and loved it so much out here that she decided to stay!
She is passionate about using a comprehensive approach that incorporates both PT and nutrition to help patients reach their goals. Shannon has a special interest in
Helping athletes learn how to fuel themselves for training
Teaching others how to plan meals that will improve their energy and health
Increasing confidence to navigate food decisions in the presence of chronic disease, allergies, or other conditions
Educating teenagers and young adults on cooking and grocery shopping skills
Shannon’s approach to physical therapy is active and educational. She loves helping patients to improve their fitness level and learn how to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives. She also enjoys teaching patients the “why” behind physical therapy exercises and how to manage pain and injury when they’re at home. Shannon wants PT to feel meaningful and collaborative to patients, so plans are tailored to each patient’s history, current lifestyle and abilities, and goals.
When Shannon’s not in the clinic, she enjoys backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, lifting weights, cooking, and exploring new places! She used to work in a bakery and own her own cake business, so every now and then she’ll make some cake or cinnamon rolls to share!
