Julia Pierson, PT, DPT received her doctorate of physical therapy from the University of Utah in 2014. She grew up on a cherry farm in Traverse City, Michigan and was raised in an active family that spent time cross-country skiing, running, cycling, and sailing. Prior to graduate school, Julia completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks (UAF) where she had an athletic scholarship for cross-country skiing and running. During her skiing career at UAF, she competed in two NCAA championships and earned All-American status.

Since graduating from PT doctoral training, Julia has worked at the Intermountain Hearing and Balance Center with a focus on treating patients with dizziness and balance disorders. In addition, she has completed a nationally renowned course in vestibular rehabilitation, as well as several other vestibular-based courses focused on conservative management for post-concussion, migraine, and cervicogenic dizziness.

Julia and her husband, Joel, welcomed their son, Calvin, into their family in 2017. Having her son has inspired Julia to pursue continuing education in women’s health and orthopedics. She is working towards a pelvic rehabilitation practitioner certification through Herman and Wallace has completed the Pelvic Floor Level 1 course. Moreover, Julia earned her Pilates for Rehabilitation certification from Polestar Pilates in 2014; she is eager to incorporate this training into her clinical practice.

In her free time, Julia continues to enjoy trail running, mountain biking, hiking, and cross-country and backcountry skiing. Her newest excitement is including her son in as many of these adventures as possible.
