About Jennifer Beran, DPT

Jennifer was born and raised in Minneapolis, thus is extremely well-known for her cold hands but equally warm heart. She received her BS in psychology from the University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse in 1998 and her doctorate from Creighton PT school in 1998. She ran her first marathon in 2001, started Premier Therapy in 2005, married the love of her life in 2009, and became certified in scuba-diving and sky-diving in 2011. Jennifer loves running, reading, talking and her helping her patients meet their goals. She also loves a good joke and padded tennis shoes (in case we didn’t mention, she’s ridiculously short.)
