I have been a physical therapist for 23 years the last 12 a co-owner of Proactive Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab. We currently have 2 locations in rural northwest Iowa. We see primarily ortho patients but it can vary due to our rural nature. I am married with 3 children a 20-year-old son, a 17-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Fun fact – only private practice in Northwest Iowa.

I have been working for Limitless Physical Therapy in Oregon for the entirety of my long (almost) 2 years of being a PT. We are a private practice outpatient clinic in Eugene, Oregon where we see the general population for orthopedic issues and a sprinkle of vestibular issues as well. My most PT-related fun fact is that I only have a palmaris longus on my left arm (and I did not have any procedure to remove the one from my right).

I am looking forward to gaining further management skills and knowledge in this class.

I have been a PT for 15 years, working in outpatient in rural Nevada all of those years. I opened Mason Valley Physical Therapy in November of 2009 in my home-town of Yerington, NV and am happy to be celebrating 10 years of business this year. We treat mostly outpatient orthopedics, but because of our setting, we have to be ready to see whatever diagnosis walks through our door. I have been married for 3 years and my husband and I have 3 dogs (including a 10 week old lab), 2 barn cats and a horse. We enjoy most anything outdoors, mostly fishing and hunting. Fun fact: I also volunteer for our local fire department as an EMT.

I have been a licensed PT for 24 years and a certified athletic trainer for 26 years. I currently work as clinical instructor, clinic director and outpatient physical therapist for ATI Physical Therapy in Smyrna, Delaware. I still dabble in athletic training at large tournaments. I am the physical therapist with all of the beagles! During my clinical rotation in the UVA training room I ran headfirst into Howie Long. (My mom was so jealous!) My clinic also has a therapist who specializes in women’s pelvic floor therapy. My dry needling skills often come in handy when we co-treat.

Owner of FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers, Crestview, Niceville and Defuniak Springs Florida. I graduated from Queen Elizabeth School of Physiotherapy, UK in 1985 and have practiced in both the UK and USA since. As a military wife we have moved several times and so I have had the privilege of gaining knowledge in several states. I started my practice in 2009 and it became part of the FYZICAL franchise in Jan 2017. In the early 2000’s I pursued becoming a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist. I teach the Pelvic Floor module to PT and PTA programs in the Panhandle of Florida, and have started teaching Manual Therapy courses this year. Currently I serve as NW Florida Regional Director for the FPTA and delegate. My most scary moment as a PT was having Florence Kendall critique me (at NRH) on my manual muscle testing technique. It was quite an experience!

I own our practices with my PT husband and have 3 amazing young adults, 2 girls and a boy in the middle (21, 19, and 17). I swam competitively through college. I am an avid exerciser with running being my most favorite work out (and therapy!). I compete in road races and triathlons when I can squeeze them in. I also am a dog LOVER and have 2 right now, an 8y/o Beagle/Terrier mix who is my best running partner and a 6 month old Husky/Lab mix who is adorable!

I have worked as a physical therapist for over 30 years. I started a small out patient clinic with one of the company owners when I started as a therapist. I ran that clinic and helped build the inpatient side into a huge corporation. I left inpatient when BBA was implemented and went to out-patient full time. I helped the company build the outpatient side. I learned a lot, but there was not a lot of the regulatory issues we have today. I later left that company after almost 20 years over a difference in philosophy. Honesty and integrity mean a lot to me. I immediately opened my current clinic. The focus is a manual therapy hybrid, one-to-one care. I tried to stay small, but I realized that I need to grow my business and figure out how to compete in a system that has POPS, HOPS and therapy companies paying Physicians for referrals. I did my training and testing to become an OMT in 1995. I am an ergonomic specialist and I am working to become certified in dry needling. I love to cook. My personal therapy is gardening. I enjoy listening to people and so I tend to be less talkative. So, if I don’t talk much, know that that is my personality.

I have been a practicing PT at Excel Physical Therapy for the past five years since graduating from the University of Rhode Island. We were a stand alone clinic but have taken the opportunity over the past couple of years to begin expansion of the practice; which is a direct influence for me to enroll in the EPPM program. I always freeze up when it comes to fun facts about myself but my wife (who is currently working through her manual certification with EIM) and I will be celebrating our first anniversary hiking Mt Kilimanjaro and going on safari in Tanzania. We will be back just in time to start/continue our respective programs!

My current practice is OP Ortho. I have been a PT for over 20 years and a practice owner since 2011. Fun fact: I found a secret hole under the flooring during our last clinic remodel and I put a time capsule in it before we covered it back up. :)
