Tana grew up in Killdeer where she fell in love with exercise through sports and entrepreneurship through watching her dad grow his own business. These two passions brought her to Bismarck. She attended the University of Mary where she received her bachelor’s in exercise science and her doctorate in physical therapy.
As she completed her clinicals for physical therapy, Tana saw the potential to combine PT and fitness to use exercise as medicine. Adding in her love for entrepreneurship and you have the start to Proximal50!

Steph is a Bismarck native, graduating from Bismarck High School in 2003. Since her time in high school, she knew she wanted to study medicine. With a competitive spirit and a passion for sports and athletics (as a multi-sport athlete herself) physical therapy as a career path was the perfect fit. Steph graduated from UND with a doctorate in physical therapy in 2009.
After some time in Minnesota, Steph and her family (husband + 3 boys!) are back in North Dakota and love everything about it - especially being closer to family.
Steph enjoys building relationships with her patients and helping them reach their health, wellness, and fitness goals. An ACL injury in 2020 gave Steph a first-hand patient’s perspective of the physical therapy process as she worked through a difficult recovery and the effort it took to return to her favorite activities (she may be a mom now, but she’s still into all things sporty!)
