Allie is the newest employee of the APTW family. Allie spent most of her childhood in Grayson, Georgia, and then attended the University of Georgia, not too far down the road. It was there that she grew an interest in sports medicine and patient care. After graduating from the University of Georgia, she became an assistant athletic trainer at Emmanuel College (NCAA Division II) for a year, working closely with more than ten different teams. She then moved into the physical therapy world when she became a Physical Therapy Tech at Emory Outpatient Facility.
From there, Allie went on to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Georgia State University. She has treated various orthopedic and neurological diagnoses and specializes in running analysis, sports medicine, and dry needling. She has worked in both outpatient and acute care settings.
Allie’s core values are providing patient-centered care and education. She believes that patients deserve one-on-one care to discover the true root of the injury instead of simply treating symptoms.
In her time away from the clinic, Allie enjoys anything that involves spending time with her family. She loves to be outdoors, especially when it comes to hiking and running, and she recently picked up gardening. She also enjoys traveling and finding local breweries and coffee shops to try out.
Allie received her B.S.Ed. in both Athletic Training and Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Georgia. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Georgia State University.
