Abby is passionate about sports –particularly basketball. She relocated to Seattle in 2014 to serve as the consulting physical therapist for the Seattle Storm – a role she continues to serve today. Her decision to become a physical therapist was ignited by working in athletics. As an undergraduate, she was a four-year team manager for the University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball team in addition to a season each with Women’s Soccer and Women’s Softball. After graduating college in 2007, she spent four seasons working for the Connecticut Sun WNBA team as their Travel Coordinator and Equipment Manager before returning to school. She graduated from the University of Connecticut Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2014 and has been working in sports medicine and orthopedics in the Seattle area since that time.
In addition to Motus Physical Therapy and the Seattle Storm, Abby also treats patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Sports Medicine Clinic in Mill Creek, where she spends time working with numerous high school athletes and young children with postural dysfunction and athletic injuries. Outside of work, Abby explores the pacific northwest, loves to go kayaking, and trains for an annual fundraiser climbing the 66 flights of stairs at Rockefeller Center in New York City for Multiple Sclerosis.
