She has 5 years of experience as a physical therapist and 2 years as a facility manager, Bria is passionate about providing a helping hand to patients recovering from diagnoses with orthopedic and post-surgical intervention needs, with a special interest in the hip joint and sports medicine injures. She finds the best treatment to be ones that get the patient actively involved in their rehabilitation process, taking a proactive and patient-centered approach to all therapy sessions. Bria firmly believes in the importance of teamwork and looks forward to working along side Doctors, Physical Therapists and PTAs within the rehab team to help patients to reach their personal and functional goals in a welcoming, positive and supportive rehab environment.
