Chronic Pain Specialist
Debbie is a rare find, a PTA and licensed massage therapist who is truly passionate about Manual Therapy work. With her wealth of knowledge and fierce interest in manual therapy, we will gladly put her up against any PT when it comes to skills. She’s well known around here for her calm demeanor and can brighten a room with her smile every time she walks in!
She has a deep understanding of chronic pain, having dealt with her share of it over the years. Baton twirling, cheerleading, earning a black belt in Tae Kwon Do as a young girl, and figure skating as an adult sure take their toll on the body.
Debbie was originally one of Joann’s first patients. As MPT quickly grew and needed extra help, Debbie was undoubtedly the perfect fit. She is a lifelong learner who obsesses over producing the best functional outcome to transform our patients’ lives - past patients always ask to work with her again!
Having lived in Bradenton, FL for 40 years, she completely understands the retired lifestyle and the importance of staying active into older age. Together with Dave, her husband and best friend, Debbie loves spending time with her daughter Samantha and her two cats, Princess and Ryan. In the future, Debbie hopes to be able to spend more time hiking in the mountains, so she is always researching new techniques and exercises to keep herself as well as her patients active and healthy.
