Annie graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in April 2019 and completed her undergraduate work at Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a Movement Science focus.
Having played (and injured herself playing) multiple sports, she has a strong interest and background in orthopedic and sports related injuries as well as post-operative rehabilitation. She's extremely passionate about helping everyone, especially girls and women, get into gyms for strength training and injury prevention training since she didn't have access to that growing up playing team sports.
Throughout her DPT program, she helped run injury prevention screenings for various running groups and freshman dancer screenings for Point Park University, along with providing race day medical support for The Pittsburgh Marathon. She continues to enjoy participating in community events in the Northern Virginia area now by bringing the benefits of physical therapy to everyone! Recently she has volunteered for the Marine Corps Marathon, Gravel Grinder Nationals, Belleau Wood 8k and Crossroads Trail 15k, as well as Vienna Youth Soccer and the Washington Dutch Lions. She specializes in finding innovative ways to challenge her patients via a total body system approach (i.e. - yes your old ankle sprain might be affecting your knee, hip, back etc!). She aims to prescribe sport-specific rehabilitation as well as help all patients get back to the activities they’re passionate about. Her main goal: to help you get back to whatever it is you enjoy!
As a Pittsburgh native, she's an avid Steelers and Penguins fan.
