I earned my Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) degree from the Mayo School of Health Sciences in 1993, and have been practicing in Great Falls ever since. I became board certified as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) in 2004. In 2007 I opened Frontier Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine. I have been appointed to the Academy of Advanced Item Writers by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy for my contributions to the National Physical Therapy Examination, and have also served as an item writer for the Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Examination for the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists. I feel very lucky to say that I look forward to coming into work every day and working with our amazing staff, as well as helping our patients in achieving their goals and improving their quality of life.
Connie Jensen, PTA
I have been with Frontier Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine alongside my husband since we opened the clinic in 2007. My background has always been in the health field in the administrative end, so Mike and I balance out the needs of our clinic from all angles. I returned to school in 2010 and received my PTA degree as I love getting to know our patients and being part of their healing process. I take a lot of pride in working alongside not only my husband but also our daughter offering our patients the best PT experience possible. When I am not in the clinic, I enjoy spending time with our children & grandchildren. We love to head to the outdoors and take advantage of all that our beautiful state has to offer.
Kirsten McCrumb , PT, DPT
I earned my Bachelor of Exercise Science degree at Montana State University before attending A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona for my Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. While I loved the sunshine of Arizona, I was born and raised in Great Falls and missed this great state, along with my family and friends. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 kids and the other amazing people in our life. Some of my interests are staying active, attending sporting events, riding horses, traveling, hiking, camping and experiencing new adventures. I find my career very rewarding because of the people I get to work with, including my patients and my fellow teammates at Frontier Physical Therapy.

Brandon Tushka, PTA
I obtained my PTA degree from Great Falls College MSU. I enjoy working in the field of physical therapy because I love helping others. I believe everyone deserves to celebrate what their bodies are fully capable of. In my spare time I love to spend time with my amazing family, get lost in the beautiful state of Montana, and work on my own wellness.
Cami Combs, PTA
I attended school at Montana State University where I earned an Associates degree in Science and then came to Great Falls where I graduated with my PTA degree from Great Falls College MSU. I grew up in a small town in Northwest Montana where I developed an appreciation for the beauty and outdoor recreation this great state has to offer. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as taking my dog for walks, camping, hiking, floating the river, and watching football or The Office. I am so grateful to work with such an awesome team here at Frontier and I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your physical therapy goals!
Hello, My name is Diane Lowery and as of November 2022 I have been with Frontier Physical Therapy for 10 years. I am proud to say that for many personal and professional reasons. You will not find another PT office where the therapists and therapy assistants are more passionate and committed to giving the very best care. On a personal level I am treated like family and I return the same sentiments.
My hobbies are reading, camping and attempting to garden. My husband grew up here and I fell in love with the area and people quickly. I look forward to meeting you and taking care of your billing needs with us.
