She began practicing in orthopedics following graduation and has now specialized in pediatrics for the past 9 years.

Dr. Sloane co-directs the Go Baby Go Oregon community program. Her involvement with this community program spurred interest in research surrounding early mobility and adaptive physical activity. She is currently a PhD Student at Oregon State University in kinesiology/adaptive physical activity. Her further research interests are in the areas of using assistive technology in physical therapy practice, and studying best practice techniques for children with a diagnosis of craniofacial disorders, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and hemophilia. Dr. Sloane has a strong interest in global health and works yearly in Merida, Mexico to provide physical therapy services to the local community.
