ABOUT

Jennifer Oetker

PT, MSPT, COMPT, Owner

Hi, I’m Jennifer (Jen) Oetker!  I am the founder/owner of Trilogy Physical Therapy, which was established in September 2021.  I graduated from Iowa State University in 1999 with a BS in Dietetics as well as Dietetic Internship passing my boards in early 2000 to become a registered dietitian.  In 2002, I graduated from Des Moines University with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy. (Yes, I am old to the profession!) 

After graduation, I moved to Arizona where I worked at various Physical Therapy settings from outpatient to inpatient to skilled nursing.  During my time in Arizona, I obtained my manual therapy certification (COMPT) while working full time traveling across the Phoenix Valley as subcontractor Physical Therapist.  In December 2010, I returned to Iowa where I have been providing physical therapy services to Ames and the surrounding community in an outpatient setting.  Since 2015, I have prioritized my continuing education on specializing in pelvic health for women, men, and children in our community.  Pelvic health as well as manual therapy are my passions where I continue to expand my learning.

I am married to my highschool sweetheart, Matt, where we grew up in Tama/Toledo, Iowa. We both attended Iowa State University.  We started our family in Arizona with Chase being born in 2005 and Adeline in 2007.  When you don’t find us at ISU sporting events, we are on the sidelines cheering on our kids with Chase playing soccer and Adeline playing tennis!  We also have a crazy German Shorthaired Pointer named Zak who keeps our time at home full of life.

Jordan Pritchard

DPT

Hello, I’m Jordan! I have been a physical therapist since 2017 after graduating from Des Moines University with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. My passion for PT began when I went through PT myself from a gymnastics injury at a young age. My desire to help others as well as being an athlete meshed well with becoming a physical therapist. I went to Central College in Pella earning my BS in Health and Exercise Science and also played for the softball team. After graduating from PT school, I ended up back in my hometown of Boone and began my career in Ames, serving the Ames, Boone, Gilbert, South Hamilton, and other surrounding communities.

I love to work with a wide array of patients, whether that be a young athlete trying to get back to their sport or someone recovering from a neurological disorder, such as a stroke. I currently spend most of my freetime chasing after my two girls or watching the Vikings and Cyclones with my husband. We love to spend summer weekends at Lake Okoboji and you can catch us in the water any chance we can get.
