Hannah Petersen, Doctor of Physical Therapy

Originally from Alaska, Hannah is thrilled to return to Fairbanks and join Willow Physical Therapy. Hannah was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, and recently moved “home” from Minnesota with her husband, Kris, their baby, Owen, and three dogs (Tessa, Ava, and Grit). She has been out of state since graduating from high school, earning her Bachelors of Science in Health Promotion in 2009 from South Dakota State University, and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Rhode Island in 2012. Hannah spent her career living and practicing as a licensed physical therapist in the state of Minnesota.

She practiced as a contract/traveling physical therapist before having Owen in 2017, after which time she began practicing as an independent physical therapist. She has quite a depth of experience working with a variety of ages (1 day old up to 103 years old!), populations, and diagnoses. Hannah’s passion lies in outpatient physical therapy, where she can approach a patient holistically, ultimately treating the root of the issue to achieve successful outcomes. While she enjoys treating a wide variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions, Hannah is excited to be meeting her goal of specializing in Pelvic and Women’s Health in the Fairbanks area.

Hannah is also a Certified Kinesiotaping Practitioner, and is certified in the LSVT BIG program. In their free time, she, Kris, Owen, and the dogs enjoy being outside taking advantage of all Alaska has to offer.
