I am 100% cured. No more numbness in my fingers. I don’t even need to wear my brace at night anymore. Your recommended equipment and posture changes did the trick. Thanks so much!

I was referred to CIM for some calf and Achilles issues a few months after a bad strain. I had the pleasure of working with Derek Haverley to resolve it. Derek took time explaining to me how dry needling could help the situation, the results were amazing. It took about 4-5 sessions of dry needling…
From the very first treatment with Tim I knew I was on the road to recovery. A combination of dry needling, manipulation, home exercises relieved my chronic leg pain caused by a herniated disk. I was in severe pain and limited mobility for more than 3 years. I’ve had 4 treatments and I’m back on…
Tim has been helping me deal with various running and cycling injuries for a couple of years. They have included hip, back, calf, and knee issues. The at-home exercises he recommended helped so much, and I am now running and cycling pain free. He also recommended a specific strength training program. I am so grateful…

Cam grew up in rural Wyoming towns before finally settling in Cheyenne, WY with his parents and older sister. When Cam was young he dreamed of saving lives as a combat medic, but his parents didn’t share my excitement for that path! Instead, Cam chose to pursue a degree in athletic training. Cam received his undergraduate degree in athletic training from the University of Northern Colorado in 2016. Since then he has worked in two different orthopedic clinics while providing coverage for high school and club athletics. Currently Cam is entering his final semester to receive his master of occupational therapy. Cam appreciates the mixture of knowledge he has developed over the last year and feels the holistic nature of occupational therapy balances the body structure and function foci of his athletic training background. Cam is obsessed with the philosophical core of occupational therapy and enjoys creating space for people to be autonomous and active recipients of care. Upon graduating Cam is interested in pursuing a specialty certification in hand therapy or vestibular therapy would like to incorporate his knowledge and experience with concussion and mild TBI into his practice.
When he is not working Cam can be found reading or exercising- he is a philosophy nerd and just started reading works by Ludwig Wittgenstein. He also likes to unwind by hiking, camping, playing chess (Buffalo Ridge Elementary School 5th grade chess club champion), or finding another plant-based recipe to master.
Bio coming soon!
I grew up in a farming community in Iowa, where this small-town, mid-western girl couldn’t wait to venture outside cornfields in exchange for skyscrapers and bright lights in Los Angeles. I resided in LA for 25 years where I enjoyed a variety of positions in the legal and medical arenas. My most challenging position was that of Disaster Response Program Manager for the American Red Cross, where I stayed very busy due to the havoc caused by Mother Nature’s wrath (wildfires, floods and earthquakes). Having lost my homes in both an F5 tornado in Iowa and the 6.0 Northridge earthquake, I understand what it is like to be impacted by a natural disaster and the importance of recovery in its aftermath. The fast-lane was not as appealing to us after the birth of our child, so my husband and I decided to slow down our pace by relocating up to the San Bernardino Mountains where we enjoyed a beautiful, peaceful mountain community for another 10 years. Family loyalty and responsibility drew us to Colorado in 2015 where we chose to be near our transplanted Iowa family. We exchanged our familiar San Bernardino Mountains for the rugged Rockies.
After getting settled in Colorado, I was unsure of what career path to pursue, but I knew that I wanted to be in an energetic, positive and healthy work environment. BINGO…Colorado in Motion called me for an interview. I was initiated into the therapy working world by covering the front desk at our busy Harmony Clinic before accepting the opportunity to learn our Industrial Health side of the business at our Windsor Clinic. I enjoy this team of devoted professionals and am inspired by everyone’s passions both inside and outside of the clinic.
I have been exploring all that Colorado has to offer and have challenged myself to many hikes in the mountains. Although I miss the Pacific Ocean, I am finding solitude in the lovely mountain lakes and streams available in Colorado in addition to all of the wildlife that exist in these habitats. I have also found a passion in photography, where I have captured spectacular mountain landscapes, wildlife and my newest interest – barns! These historic structures are disappearing from our landscape and I am determined to photograph EVERY one of them while dragging my family along for the adventure. I guess things have gone full circle for me…I have returned to my country-girl roots and am enjoying life as the Barn Goddess…in motion.
