Physical Therapist Assistant

Paige Dunmore, BS, PTA, PCES
Paige earned her undergraduate degree in Mass Communication and worked as a radio personality before eventually stumbling upon physical therapy due to a running injury. Not long after, she returned to school full-time to become a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2014, just ahead of the birth of her first child.
Paige has worked in outpatient orthopedics for the last five years, specializing in manual therapy, postpartum exercise rehab, and return-to-running rehab. While she absolutely loved working in the clinic and being hands on, following a very traumatic birth with her second child, she decided to take some time and finally focus on her own rehab so that she could get back to running ultramarathons again!
Staying home with her two toddlers allowed her the time and space to go after her true passion: pregnancy and postpartum rehab. Paige found Sarah’s Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist certification after experiencing diastasis and prolapse following her second pregnancy. She enrolled in and then graduated from the PCES course in early 2019 and has been practicing what she preaches ever since! Sarah’s programs are the real deal and now that she can run, jump, lift, carry, and live life without fear she is determined to help other women achieve the results they are looking for!

Certified Pilates Instructor

Michelle Wade, PCES

Michelle is a Mom of 2 active boys, a Pilates instructor, a former lacrosse player, and enjoys running/walking with her big double stroller, biking, yoga, etc.

After having two kids (C Section & VBAC), she wanted (needed) to find a prenatal/postnatal training. Her pre-pregnancy exercises were not helping her regain her strength and she knew she needed to focus on rehabbing her core and pelvic floor. After researching various online trainers and programs, she found Sarah’s program and was thoroughly impressed.

Both Sarah's Core Exercise Solutions offerings and her PCES certification are an abundance of information, she has done all of the research, and it enabled Michelle to strengthen herself and help women of all stages of life with all different backgrounds/experiences. She is so thankful for all that Sarah's programs have done for her and she is excited to put her certification to use helping women become strong and thrive.

Keturah Srot

Keturah's favorite thing to do is encourage our members, and help them find motivation and hope as they heal their bodies.

The level of pain and injuries she sustained from having her son felt devastating. Despite seeing two pelvic floor physical therapists, she was still in pain and hobbling a year and a half postpartum. As a former gymnast and a classically trained pianist, she is very connected to her body. Not getting better wasn’t going to cut it for her. Thankfully, she heard about Sarah and her programs! The support and healing she received forever changed her life and body and made her want to support other women in their own healing journeys.

When she is not in the group, she loves spending time with her husband and son. She also loves weightlifting and dancing, is a prolific knitter and enjoys vintage anything, lipstick, and chai tea.
