Angie is a licensed Physical Therapist who has been practicing in Austin for over 10 years. Upon completion of her undergraduate work at The University of Texas at Austin, Angie studied at Texas Woman’s University in Dallas where she earned a Master of Science in Physical Therapy. She began her career at St. David’s Medical Center in Austin working with adults in an inpatient rehabilitation setting helping them regain function after sustaining various neurological and orthopedic insults including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, fractures and joint replacements.
