Meet Our Team
Here at BE Fit, we think people matter. That’s why we value you, the patients, and why we value our employees. We know that the quality of your therapy, the speed of your recovery, and how much you enjoy your time here, all depend on the quality of the staff we have. That’s why BE Fit employs only highly experienced and caring physical therapists. Our therapists combined have greater than 50 years of experience in patient care. We have a passion for our work. We are all lifelong learners who continue to take courses and incorporate current research into practice. All of us also like to get out and live an active lifestyle in this wonderful Upper Valley region. We’ve each had our share of aches and pains and surgeries, so we know on a personal level the challenges you face as well.
BE Fit does not utilize physical therapy assistants or aides to provide any of the care for our patients. This ensures that every patient will be seen one on one by an experienced, caring, physical therapist at every visit. It’s what you want, and it’s what we want. That allows us to develop the relationships needed to make physical therapy work, by providing the key patient education and follow-through to get us all working together with you to improve your health. This philosophy extends throughout our staff, who are all here with the goal of getting you back to better health, allowing you to BE Fit and BE Well! We look forward to meeting you, and invite you to click on our staff bios to learn more about us.
