Dr. Gilmer specializes in sports injuries, knee and shoulder arthroscopy, and fracture care. He completed his Orthopaedic Surgery Residency training at the University of Washington’s world-renowned Harborview Medical Center where he treated complex Orthopaedic injuries and fractures from a five state area including Washington, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska. He then completed subspecialty fellowship training at the Taos Orthopaedic Institute in ski and snowboard related trauma and arthroscopy.

Kendi grew up in Greencastle, Indiana and attended Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. There, she swam competitively and is a decorated road and track cyclist, winning both individual and team national titles throughout her collegiate career. Upon retirement of all competitive sports she naturally transitioned to yoga as a personal care system and fell in love with the physicality of the practice. In October of 2016 she spent two months on Kauai studying at Yoga Hanalei allowing her to expand her spiritual practice and cultivate personal growth through chanting, philosophy and anatomy. Her classes are designed to take her students beyond their self-imposed limitations with emphasis on alignment and step-by-step progressions. She also studies Sanskrit and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and is excited to share her knowledge and foster growth in the Mammoth yoga community.
