ainbridge Island’s working women do something more as they juggle the many demands of work and family. They also contribute, over and over again, to the philanthropic health and civic life of their community. They give to our auctions. They take on leadership positions and help to educate our children. They volunteer for groups working to house, clothe and feed islanders in need. So this week, take a moment to say thank you to the many women who, in one fashion or another, make this island run. Their contributions are immeasurable. The profiles featured in this section are paid advertising. We at The Bainbridge Island Review salute them!

MOVING IS THE NAME OF HER GAME BY LESLIE KELLY

Everything Marsha Novak does centers on moving well – “the place where learning to move meets moving to learn,” she likes to say. Novak, of Bainbridge Island, is the owner of Moving Well Physical Therapy and Movement Education. She’s been in private practice since 1998, and prior to that worked at the University of Washington Sports Medicine Clinic. She has a degree in physical therapy from the University of Washington. But her work has never been about medicine or healthcare. It’s always been about movement. “When someone comes to see me and they have knee pain, I’m not looking to just ease the knee pain,” she said. “I’m looking to find what’s at the root of the problem. Is it how they stand? It is how they move? My work is about helping client discover new, more efficient patterns of posture and movement.” Having been in the movement business for more than 30 years, Novak had a practice in Fremont and one on Bainbridge Island, until 2010, when she began working solely on Bainbridge. Typically, she’s working with from 15 to 30 clients at one time, ranging from adults with pain and neurologic conditions to children who have special needs. She is best known for her work as a Feldenkrais practitioner. Thought working primarily as a Feldenkrais practitioner, her work is based in her physical therapist roots and incorporates aspects of other disciplines. In the Feldenkrais method, the practitioner directs attention to habitual movement patterns which are inefficient or strained, and teaches new patterns using gentle, slow movements. Slow repetition is thought to be needed to impart a new habit and allow it to begin to feel normal. The method was developed by Moshe Feldenkrais and aims to reduce pain and improvement physical function. Sometimes clients follow verbally directed movements and repeat them. Other times the practitioner uses hands-on to guide the movement. Recently, Novak has been working to extend the work she does to help children

with learning disabilities and limitations. She’s always been interested and involved in education including teaching Kinesiology at Cornish College. So this is a natural progression, she said. What she has discovered is that “movement difficulties and learning dysfunctions are often bedfellow.” Many of these children have not fully integrated their neonatal, sometimes called primitive, reflexes and can significantly benefit from specialized work to do that. “These reflexes develop either in utero or during the first few months of life,” she wrote in a recent blog. “Absence of these reflexes in newborns suggests a serious neuromotor impairment or disease.” When these reflexes do not fully integrate, she said, this can trigger learning or attention challenges. Because of this, she sees children with these issues and once their physical movement becomes integrated, their learning abilities usually improve. The first step is for her to assess the child. Until the end of the year, she will offer a $25 assessment for children considered “neurotypical” but who struggle in school. At this session, she will discuss options with parents. Assessments include such things as looking at a child’s overall movement, balance, proprioception and the integration of primary reflexes. Depending on what she sees, she will recommend some combination of private in-office work and exercises to practice at home. In some cases, she may refer a client on to another specialist, like she did with a recent child who had visual issues. And she will always recommend physical activity. “Moving builds brain connections,” she said. “More complex movements activities are better. Anything like climbing walls, gymnastics, yoga or dance classes are valuable for kids and adults, too.” Though the $25 assessment for children is a time-limited offer, she has an on-going practice of offering adults who are new to her a 20 to 30 minute taste of her hands-on Feldenkrais work for $25.

Katy Bigelow

SHE DOES HER WORK SKY HIGH

BY LESLIE KELLY

Recently, Katy Bigelow went home to visit her mother in California. Her mother brought out a box of old slides from when Katy was a kid. “There is was,” she said. “A bunch of pictures of me climbing trees.” It caught her off guard because she didn’t remember liking to climb trees as a kid. “I loved the outdoors and I loved hiking in the forest,” she said. “My dad was an outdoors guy and he’d take us out wood cutting.” But her mother told her “You were always up in trees.” So it’s only natural that Bigelow would become a professional arborist. She started her own company in 2003, after working at world-class arboretums in Santa Cruz, Seattle, and Melbourne, Australia. She also worked for the City of Seattle and the University of Washington while completing a degree in horticulture. “I started out as a gardener,” she said. “But I became very interested in trees.” She has a degree in arboriculture, and is a Certified Arborist through the International Society of Arboriculture. She also became certified as a Tree Risk Assessor in 2007. Most recently she received the distinction of becoming the second woman in Washington State to become a Registered Consulting Arborist with the American Society of Consulting

Arborists. As a female arborist, Bigelow’s had the experience of going to a job, only to have the homeowner ask “Whose going up the tree?” “When I say ‘me,’ they sometimes get a strange look on their face,” she said. Her work was originally on small trees, but as she progressed, she became interested in large trees. Most of her work now is consulting with homeowners who want to know more about their trees. “Especially with people new to this area who don’t know much about larger trees,” she said. “They want to know ‘Is that tree gonna fall on my house?’” She also consults with architects, business owners and developers who want ideas on how to save trees on property that they are developing. “People ask if my work get boring,” she said. “But it never does because it’s always a different situation in a different backyard.” She can access tree risk, help with planting decisions, analyze tree health, and other gardening and tree needs. And then there’s the cat rescues. If you go to her Facebook page (Katy Bigelow, Arborist, LLC), you’ll see a video of her rescuing Mogli, a cat in Kingston who’d been up a tree for six days.

It was part chance and part happenstance that Mindy Anderson ever got into caring for pets. As a veterinarian assistant working the front desk at a vet clinic, she knew she loved pets – mostly cats and dogs. But it wasn’t until she ran into another pet sitter that she ever thought about having that be her career. And now it’s 13 years later and she’s busy from morning to night seven days a week, walking dogs and doing vacation care for cats and dogs. “I was at one of those pet walks that Kitsap Humane Shelter was sponsoring,” Anderson said. “I ran into a woman there who was a pet sitter in central Kitsap and she became a friend of mine. She convinced me that I should give it a try.” And so she did. She opened Aunty Min’s Specialized Pet Care Inc., in 2002. Named for what her friends with “human kids” call her, she cares for pets on Bainbridge Island. “They call me Auntie Min,” she said. “So I figured that was a great name for the business.” Anderson first started very part time while she worked other jobs, including working for a record company and other administrative jobs. But she knew that wasn’t for her. “I really didn’t want to be a desk person,”

she said. “I knew I was all about animals.” She’d grown up with siamese cats and doberman dogs at home, and currently has two dachshunds, Rocky, 13 and Bella, 8. Her beloved Sammy, another dachshund, passed away at age 15 just a few months ago. Having built her business mostly by word of mouth, and with her connections at local veterinarian offices, she now has more than 100 clients. Some of them want their dogs walked once a day. Others need their dogs let out to “do their business” a couple times a day. Still others want Anderson to care for their pets while they are away on vacation. Her basic fees are $22 for 30 minutes. A “woof walk,” where dogs are walked in groups, runs $30. And potty breaks are $17. “I like to group the dogs for walks, with the little ones together,” she said. “It helps with the socialization.” If you ask her if she’s ever been bit, this is her answer. “Of course,” she said. “I kinda think it’s part of the job.” But she said it’s usually minor and often times her fault because she’s come between an animal and their food. Another wearing part of her job is getting in and out of her car many, many times a day. See ANDERSON, Page A7


OCTOBER 30, 2015

NOVAK, Continued from page A3 Generally, she will work with a client for six visits, to begin to develop new movement patterns. At that point she and her clients decide if they can benefit from continuing the work. Sometimes they will continue working with her on a schedule of once a month for several months. She does each a few group sessions and most of her clients are private pay. The favorite part of her job is “seeing someone’s life improve.” “I like the biomechanics,” she said. “It’s like solving a puzzle. But it’s much more than that. It’s helping people with the problems that are getting in the way of them living the life they want to and improving the quality of their lives.”

BIGELOW, Continued from page A5 “I love that part of my work,” she said. “Most tree arborists don’t like cats, let along going up a tree to get one. The fire department won’t do it anymore. But I’m happy to do it.” Thus far this year, she’s rescued 30 cats in the Kitsap and King counties area. She puts one thing first. “I learned from another cat rescuer that climber safety comes first,” she said. “The owner is frustrated and emotional and the cat is emotional and I have to keep my wits about me.” Once at the level of the cat (she been from 20 feet to more than 100 feet up a tree), she tries to make friends with it. But she knows what to do when she gains control of the

ANDERSON, Continued from page A6 “There’s a lot of ins and outs of the car to this work,” she joked. The best part of her job? She never gets lonely. “I get to meet so many animals,” she said. “And they all become like family.” The worst part? When an animal passes. “The absolute worst part of my job is losing a furry friend,” she said. “Some of these pets I have known for years. Some I’ve seen every day for years and it’s very hard.” Animals are such a part of her life that

She also likes mentoring other students who are studying movement related disciplines. Currently, she is mentoring a student learning Feldenkrais, which involves 800 hours of training. In her free time, she likes to knit and enjoying time with her husband, Robert, who recently retired after 34 years as the librarian at Seattle University. They’ve lived on Bainbridge Island since 2007. “Moving my home and work to Bainbridge Island has been wonderful,” she said. “I like the quieter, slower pace of life.

She puts it in the bag. “The cat may look sweet,” she said. “But after all its been through, the claws may come out.” She comes back down to the ground and hands the cat to his or her owner, bag and all.
