PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

As a student at Hope College Whitney notes that she was inspired through a hospital-based physical therapy internship in Philadelphia, sparking her interest to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree from Central Michigan University. After graduating, she worked for a large hospital system treating a wide variety of orthopedic and neurological populations from pediatric to adult. During this time she developed a special interest in post-stroke, Parkinson’s disease and vestibular disorders. However, she notes that her “greatest passion” is to better understand the functional movement of her patients, regardless of their diagnosis. This passion led her to pursue the certification as a Fellow of Applied Functional Science (FAFS) through the Gray Institute. Her passion for movement started at an early age while participating in youth sports but further developed through an appetite for running, which she feeds with several road races every year. She also enjoys passing along her knowledge and encouragement through coaching youth volleyball. One of her favorite quotes is from Mother Teresa: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” Because of this, she chose the statement, “i’m smiling” to put on the back of her business card. “I always want to brighten someone’s day, not only through movement but because “i’m smiling.”
