Featuring Marieke Crawford
HerNature asked Marieke, “What woman has inspired you to be the real you?”
Torhild Kvarekval was a big influence for me in continuing my education as a physical therapist.
We met in 1995. For two years, she would fly in from California every other weekend to teach for the Ola Grimsby Institute in New Orleans.
She was a great mentor who inspired me to learn more. She encouraged me to think for myself.
Her coaching style was inclusive. She was a great mentor who inspired me to learn more. She encouraged me to think for myself.
After completing my master’s in orthopedic manual therapy, I continued with my education in California for another two years, where Torhild was an instructor. We became great friends over those years.
She helped me see the difference I could make for my patients.
