Molly Lechtenberg, PT, DPT, CMTPT 

Molly graduated from Des Moines University in 2008 with Libby.  She has worked in a variety of settings, and focuses on manual therapy and dry needling.  Her and her husband, Scott, have a daughter, Lennon, and a dog named Mac. 

Libby Trausch, DPT, PYT-C

Libby has focused on women's and pelvic health, as well as general orthopedic conditions for nearly all the time she has been practicing physical therapy.  She uses yoga-based strategies, complemented by manual therapy in her treatments.  She is married to Ryan (also a physical therapist) and has 3 children, Olive, George & Franklin.  

Summer traveled the world before settling down in Des Moines. When not manning the front desk at Breathe. (and keeping the therapists under control) she is either making vegan treats or spending time with her husband, Joel and her furbabies.  She is very excited to work with all the women in the Breathe. tribe.  

Kaylee Carroll, PT, DPT 

​Kaylee graduated from Des Moines University in 2017. She has had a wide variety of clinical experiences and is excited to build upon them as she develops her career in physical therapy and women's health at Breathe. She and her husband, Joe, were born and raised in Altoona and married in 2016.  

Breathe. Physical Therapy & Wellness was founded by two PT School classmates and friends with a shared vision for a different kind of physical therapy. Molly started school with a goal of opening her own business one day, and Libby never dreamed she'd own her own business.  They took very different paths to get there, but one hot summer afternoon in August 2016, dreams started to become reality, and Breathe. was born.

We are tremendously grateful for all of the voices in our community and support we've received along the way.  We ask for your continued support as we begin to change the conversation about how physical therapy is delivered.  We are especially grateful to our husbands and families, without whose support this tremendous step would not be possible.  Namaste.
