Athletity is a physical therapy and performance lab where
individuals are a valued teammate on their path to be their peak
Our goal is to launch a physical therapy and performance lab
and maintain 10 visits per week for the initial 6 months.
The Athletity Experience.
You are treated as a respected team member in this process from
day 1. You will be educated on the source of your pain or injury
and all exam findings of your muscle and joint health. Discussion
of solutions and treatment options will allow our expert advice to
guide your decisions. By having complete attention and
treatment tailored to your exact needs you will see results faster
than other methods. Discover the difference at Athletity and get
back to being an every day warrior.
Attentive, one-on-one care by Physical Therapists is our way. We
avoid spending appointment time doing things you are capable
of doing by yourself. We offer online strength training programs
for runners. We provide biannual performance assessments for
muscle and joint health.
Our goal is to provide physical therapy and enhance
human performance of active individuals.
We are passionate about everyone having a choice
to have an active lifestyle without their body holding
When they encounter our brand, our audience FEELS:
empowered, supported, capable, energized, worthy,
We are: strong, driven, helping, expert, caring,
We believe you are special, there is no one else just like you. You
will always be a respected teammate.
Taking time for yourself is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. You
provide maintenance for everything else in life, your body
deserves even better.
We believe being an athlete is a lifestyle, not a phase of life. You
don’t have to win a race or play a sport to be an athlete. Do you
compete against yourself to be better? An athlete is a mindset.
Not everything is easy. Hard work and persistence are required
on our journey of life.
I have a history of connecting with patients and making
them feel listened to, understood and important. I have
worked with soldiers, world class athletes and every day
warriors juggling life’s responsibilities while injured. I
have the skills to get people better fast and on a tight
time schedule. I know how to help others heal with
individual and group treatments. My natural cheerleader
motivates and inspires patients. My business model
allows normal constraints of insurance to be lifted freeing
my time to be focused solely on the person in front of me,
not paperwork. I prefer the relationship to be that of a
coach and athlete working as a team to create a warm,
supportive, motivated environment.

I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy and one of only 300 board
certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialists in Ohio. I can find the
source of your pain, discover muscle imbalances and provide a
clear plan to keep you active.
In my eyes, being an athlete is a lifestyle, not a phase of life. You

My previous experience is with rehabilitating soldiers to return to
running and performing at the highest levels. I have never been
an elite athlete, but I enjoy challenging myself to see if I can do a
little more each workout than I set out to do.

I started out in a busy orthopedic clinic in Tennessee, seeing 3-4
patients at a time. After 7 years of college, my heart sank
realizing the quality of care provided was subpar. This method of
the clinic caused patients to be just a number, there was not
enough time to provide the best care. Feeling frustrated and
wanting to make a difference, I transitioned to a facility treating
active-duty soldiers. While there, I treated over a thousand
soldiers. Some had combat injuries, although most were
sidelined with overuse injuries from constant running and lifting
I perfected my skills treating active people who had busy
schedules and jobs to do, just like you. I want to bring the best
level of care and healing possible to every person, because you
During high school, I was plagued with frequent ankle sprains.
Each time, I was told to do the same 3 exercises, ice and put on
crutches. After the initial advice I was never told how to adjust
those exercises or return to sport. I was left to guess. I’m sure you
have guessed your way through returning from injury not
knowing exactly what to do. It’s frustrating. I have a passion for
guiding others through this healing process to save them time.
Proper recovery from injury needs to include measures to avoid
dealing with the same issue in a few months. Time training for a
race and competition is stressful enough, let alone when your
outlet of stress is interrupted.
Discuss gardening, family travels, baking.

The importance of individualized care.
My view of healthcare completely changed after my first
appointment at an OB office when I was expecting my second
child. I approached the desk to check in and was told “take a
number, sit down”, I could not even say “hi, I’m here” without
taking a number. Was I at the deli? When the appointment
started it consisted of 20 minutes of rapid fire questioning. I felt
unheard. I was frustrated. I was told if I chose to work with a
midwife, I would share appointment times with a group of 20
other women in similar stages of pregnancy. When did I become
just a number? Why did I have to share a personal experience
with complete strangers? Medical systems had gone too far. At
that moment, I knew I could never again provide care to patients
that made them feel like only a number. Every single person
deserves to have care based on their specific needs, wants and
