I graduated from the College of St. Scholastica with my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2011. My husband and I spent the first two years of our marriage as traveling Physical Therapists in Colorado, Hawaii, and California. I worked in outpatient, inpatient, and long term care settings treating a wide variety of patients. We then decided to settle back in Minnesota to start our family. I spent the next 9.5 years as an inpatient and outpatient pediatric physical therapist gaining knowledge and experience treating a wide range of pediatric patients. I have special interest in concussion management, torticollis remediation, developmental delays, orthopedics, sports injuries, and bowel and bladder incontinence. I happily joined the Advanced Therapy Team to pursue my passion for helping your child and family thrive. I look forward to being part of your unique journey. In my free time I love spending time with my husband and 3 children, camping, running, biking, gardening, and hanging out at the family cabin.

Renee Caron- Team Lead
I graduated in May 2014 from Marquette University with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
I joined the Advance Therapy team in December 2014. I have primarily worked in pediatrics throughout my career, but do have experience in inpatient rehabilitation as well.
I love being a physical therapist because it allows me to help my patients move in a more functional and safe way, and hopefully have some fun while doing it! I have a special training for treating bowel and bladder incontinence as well as general pediatrics, early intervention, orthotic and equipment management and use of multiple modalities to help the children reach their goals. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Daniel, our children, Isaac and Brooke, and our cat and dog! We enjoy being active and exploring, but also love playing and spending time together at home!

I received my BA in Physical Therapy in 1979 and my Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2014 from the College of St Scholastica. I have practiced primarily in pediatrics doing home intervention, early childhood birth-3, school setting, hospital in/outpatient, as well as previously owning a private pediatric practice. I have been with Advance Therapy since May 2011. I enjoy building long-term relationships with the clients and families that the pediatric PT profession affords. My special interests are torticollis remediation, treating bowel and bladder incontinence, early intervention, rehabilitation, and working with post trauma/surgical clients.
Outside of work in the clinic, I enjoy traveling, bible study, reading, playing bridge, laughing at my husband’s jokes, and being a Nonna to 5 grandchildren. Lifetime goal: “Well done good and faithful servant”.

Physical therapists at Advance Therapy work with infants through adolescents to promote motor development, strength, endurance and independence in order to reach their maximum potential and function. This is done by providing activities to improve movement and motor learning, muscle tone management, exercise, balance and coordination activities, and strategies to improve posture and positioning. Physical therapists also design and fit equipment, work with orthotics and prosthetics, and promote remediation of torticollis, plagiocephaly, and bowel/bladder incontinence.
This "work" is done all while the child is engaged in fun and motivating activities!
Hello families! I graduated from Bethel University in 2014 with my BS in Biokinetics, and then I went on to receive by Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Mayo Clinic in Rochester in 2018. I began working at Advance Therapy in the summer of 2021. I absolutely love being a part of a team that is focused on helping children thrive. I value my time with the kiddos and intentionally try to build their confidence and self esteem during their PT appointments. Outside of the clinic, I love taking walks with my husband Jimmy and our daughter Haven.
I graduated from the University of Mary with my BS in exercise science in 2013 and my Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2016. I began working at Advance Therapy in November 2016. I have had experience working primarily in pediatrics, but also have some experience working in the orthopedics world as well. I enjoy combining some of my pediatric experience and my orthopedic experience to work with young athletes. While I love working with all kids from infancy through teenagers, I have a special interest for working with dancers or other similar performing artists. As a physical therapist, I love working with children because I get to be creative while I help them to move more functionally allowing them to engage in play that may have been difficult previously. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Nicholas, our daughter, Lily, and of course our cat and dog. I love playing board games, dance, enjoying a good book, or just spending quality time with friends and family.
