Brittany is a licensed physical therapist and athletic trainer who joined Suburban Physical Therapy (SPT) in 2020. After earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2014 from Northwestern University in Chicago, Brittany began practicing physical therapy at an outpatient facility in Chicago for five years. While there, she specialized in physical therapy for performing arts, gymnastics, cheerleading, high school athletics, and Bell’s palsy.
Brittany is passionate about athletics and the performing arts, which led her to become the primary physical therapist for DanceWorks Chicago and to provide injury screening for CITY Gymnastics Club, Providence High School Cheerleading, and various local teams. Upon leaving Chicago, Brittany worked as a travel physical therapist in Connecticut, Georgia, and Michigan before joining SPT.
In 2018, she earned her Board Certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. She is also certified in Selective Functional Movement Assessment and is a Graston Technique Specialist. Brittany uses these specialties to treat a wide range of patients, from pediatrics to geriatrics and has experience working with ankle/foot, knee, hip, spine, shoulder, elbow, and wrist injuries.
Brittany actually developed an interest in physical therapy when she became a patient here at SPT due to injuries she incurred during her 15-year career as a competitive gymnast at Gymnastics World in Brecksville. This experience fueled her desire to complete her high school senior project at SPT and pursue a career in physical therapy.
Brittany attended Michigan State University (MSU) where she was a cheerleader, and she earned her bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training in 2011. While in the athletic training program, she worked with the MSU women’s volleyball and basketball teams and various Holt High School athletic teams.
In Brittany’s free time, she enjoys many athletic activities including beach volleyball, golf, snow skiing, and water skiing. She enjoys spending time with friends and family and attending sporting events and theater performances. Brittany is also passionate about volunteering her physical therapy skills, both locally and abroad, with previous trips to Haiti and Nicaragua.
