Rachel’s interest in physical therapy began as a young athlete with frequent and recurrent orthopedic injuries. It was her own benefit from physical therapy throughout high school that inspired her to attend Misericordia University to pursue both her Bachelor’s degree in Health Care Management and then her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. As a clinician, her passion for orthopedic physical therapy grew and she completed the St. Luke’s Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency. She is now faculty as both a mentor and a clinical associate professor. Rachel is a Board-Certified Specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy. She believes that each patient’s care should be tailored to meet their personalized goals through an active treatment approach and rooted in best practice evidence. While she enjoys treating an array of orthopedic conditions and populations of all ages and demographics, she takes a special interest in treating hunters as an avid hunter herself. Outside of the clinic, she can be found spending time with her family and rooting for the New York Giants and the Michigan Wolverines.
