Janie Hett

I grew up on a ranch southwest of Buffalo and enjoyed an active lifestyle through sports and ranching which fueled my drive to become a physical therapist. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Wyoming and later graduated from Pacific University with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2006. After working for four years in the Pacific Northwest, I decided to return home to western South Dakota and Peak Motion Physical Therapy was born. I started clinics both in Spearfish and Buffalo. In the last year, I married my soul mate and we welcomed our sweet boy Nathan in June.
