Meet the Team
Dr. Courtney Buhrow
Courtney grew up in Cedar Falls, Iowa and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelors in Exercises Science. She then received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Des Moines University in Des Moines, Iowa in 2018.
She was introduced to physical therapy while in high school, when she had an injury of her own playing sports. Since that point, she has continued to learn and discover ways that physical therapy can help individuals regain their function and get their lives back. With her experience in multiple health care settings, it has equipped her to see the whole person rather than a single injury. With two kids of her own, she knows what it is like to return to sport or exercise following pregnancies and deliveries. She is passionate about helping other women return to the sports and activities they love without pain or peeing their pants. She is certified in Functional Dry Needling, extra training in Women’s/Pelvic Health, and TPI Certification for Golf Swing Analysis.
Outside of the office, you can find Courtney spending time with her husband Travis, daughter Addelynn (4), and son Kasen (2), traveling to see family and friends, or engaging in competition of any kind. She is an avid runner and loves a night out on the golf course. In her free time you will find her playing with her kids, training for a race, or playing a round of golf! She also enjoys volunteering with the Waukee NW High School Girl’s Basketball team.
Haylee Wilkening (OT)
Haylee grew up in LeGrand, Iowa and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She then received her Doctorate of Occupational Therapy from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska in 2017.
She was first encouraged by her father, who was her high school guidance counselor, to explore occupational therapy as a career. Around that same time, her grandfather was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and quickly lost function physically and cognitively. Her grandfather’s work with an Occupational therapist inspired her to pursue a career in the field to better help individuals be able to do the things they love by treating the entire person. Her passion for treating holistically and looking at the person, not just the injury, has been a driving force for her passion in being an OT. Haylee is Women’s/pelvic health certified with a passion for helping woman do the things that bring them joy pre and post-partum.
Haylee married her high school sweetheart, Keegan and they have two children, Leo (4) and Mack (1). She and her family love to spend time outside together and playing sports, specifically softball and football. You can find her cheering on the Hawkeyes in the fall while her husband would prefer the Cyclones. Haylee enjoys working out, specifically strength training, and is always looking for a new challenge both physically and mentally.
