Jenn Truax


Jennifer (Jenn) is the Director of Physical Therapy at Hope Orthopedics. She graduated from Des Moines University with a Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy and earned her undergraduate degrees in Athletic Training and Exercise Science at Linfield College. Jenn enjoys helping with community education programs and is often heard saying “movement is the best medicine.” Throughout her 25 year career in physical therapy, she encourages her patients to avoid defining a ceiling after injury because each person often exceeds expectations! She is a dedicated practitioner who finds serving Salem and the surrounding valley a great privilege.

Interests include medical missions abroad for children, wellness workshops, and participating in outdoor activities in the great Pacific Northwest.
