Chelsea is a Physical Therapist Assistant here at the Independence and Coffeyville, KS Advanced Physical Therapy clinics. She earned her Bachelors degree at Pittsburg State University, majoring in Biology and Chemistry. She spent some time in other areas of the medical field but ultimately found her passion in physical therapy after becoming certified as a personal fitness trainer in 2016. Soon after, she received her Physical Therapy Assistant degree from Labette Community College in 2017. She is currently pursuing a strength and conditioning specialist certification (CSCS). Throughout her time here at APT, she has grown a special interest in Women’s Health after getting hands-on training by the Women’s Health therapist, Cori Hall, DPT. She is planning to become a certified Women’s Health therapist in the near future. Chelsea is also Astym certified.
Chelsea has such a passion for helping others meet their goals and regain the best quality of life. She really enjoys working with sports injuries, Women’s Health, and orthopedic patients, as they can lead to some of the most rewarding success stories for her. With this passion and the excellent experiences she has had so far on the APT team, she has decided to advance her career here by furthering her education in pursuance of becoming a Physical Therapist. She is planning to apply for PT school next year.
Some of Chelsea’s hobbies are running (a lot), reading, working out, hiking, and spending time with her family, friends, and her fur baby, Leonidis. Interesting facts about her are that she is the Worship Director at her church and has had the opportunity to organize a 5K benefit run for a co-worker’s non-profit organization, that raised around $2,500. She is very thankful for getting to work with such compassionate co-workers and friends.
