Dutton joined St. Catherine University in 2008. During her tenure here, she has served in a variety of leadership roles, including department chair and program director for physical therapy, associate dean, and most currently as the interim dean of health sciences.

In 2018, Dutton received the Stanford Award from the Journal of Physical Therapy Education, which recognizes authors of a paper containing the most influential educational ideas. The article, co-authored with Debra Sellheim, PhD, explored how students experience and cope with the differences between their curriculum and clinical practice.

Prior to joining the faculty at St. Catherine University, Dutton served as the founding program director for the physical therapy programs at The University of Findlay and later as dean of the College of Health Professions. Dutton currently teaches content in the area of rehabilitation, neurologic physical therapy, and motor learning.

Dutton has practiced as a physical therapist in acute care, inpatient rehabilitation, and outpatient settings. In keeping with these interests, she has published and presented nationally on topics related to neurologic physical therapy and education.

Dutton earned her bachelor’s degree in physical therapy at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. She received her master’s in neurologic physical therapy from the Chicago Medical School, and a PhD in higher education administration from Bowling Green State University.
