Brande graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science/Physical Education, and in 1999 with a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy. She started her physical therapy career working in orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation, but quickly discovered her interest in the area of Women’s Health. She actively pursued continuing education and has worked over the last 24 years to develop her specialty for the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction.
Brande has also completed training in the utilization of sEMG intra-vaginal and intra-rectal biofeedback for the purpose of neuromuscular re-education for dysfunctional voiding and defecation disorders, as well as sexual pain disorders.

She is the founder and owner of Women’s Health Physical Therapy, in Redding, CA. After qualifying to sit for the inaugural exam in 2014, Brande is amongst the first group of practitioners to receive the designation of PRPC (Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification), which distinguishes professionals with expertise in treating men and women with pelvic dysfunction throughout the life cycle, inclusive of bladder, bowel, gynecological, orthopedic, sexual and obstetric topics. Brande has been in private practice for greater than 15 years, and she has an estimated 44,000 hours of working in a pelvic health related specialty. In 2022, she enrolled in a post-professional physical therapy doctorate program in musculoskeletal management, and she will be completing this by the end of 2023. She is passionate about teaching, and thus plans to spend more time mentoring and teaching in years to come.
