Andrea has been a physical therapist assistant since 2001. She gained her desire to help people on their rehabilitation journey after observing her grandmother’s recovery following five total hip replacements. From there, she knew she wanted to help people get back to the activities that they love and return to everyday living.
Andrea enjoys working with the pediatric and geriatric patient populations, working over the lifespan from youth to the golden years. She is an organized, “plan ahead” type of person that applies fun and function to her patient-oriented treatment plans. She feels it is important for her patients to maintain, learn, and progress skills where they can.
When asked what she loves most about being a therapist: “I enjoy the relationships built when helping a patient get well, regain functional skills, or learn new skills.”
In her spare time, she enjoys many outdoor activities and spending time in the garden.
