Laura Kummerle, PT, DPT, OCS, cert DN


As the founder of Paradigm of Perfection, Laura started the instagram page @paradigmofperfection in 2017 while completing her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. The page originally started as a training journal with the intent of showing others that you can workout in different ways outside of the traditional gym setting in a way that is fun. It has since evolved into a company that offers consult calls and individualized workout programs. Laura also is an orthopedic physical therapist, BaseBlocks trainer, MyFlex coach, and certified Barefoot Movement Coach.

Credentials: physical therapist (PT), doctor of physical therapy (DPT), orthopedic clinical specialist (OCS), dry needling certified (cert. DN)
