Hello! My name is Amanda and I am a Physical Therapist's Assistant here at Total Body Therapy and Wellness!
I was born in Peoria, IL and my family moved to Johnson City, TN in October 1988 when I was 8 years old. In 1998 I married my husband, Jerry, and moved to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of Western NC. I attended Daniel Boone High School in Gray, TN during my Freshmen and Sophomore years and transferred to Christian Life Academy in Kingsport, TN for my Junior and Senior years. I graduated with honors from Caldwell Community College in Lenoir, NC in May 2015 with my A.A.S as a Physical Therapist Assistant. I have my NC license as a Massage & Bodywork Therapist. I have my certification as a Lymphatic Therapist. I love reading, sewing or crafting. I love walking the beach or hiking mountain trails with my husband, Jerry. I enjoy cooking for my husband and family, 18 years ago when I got married, I was deemed the "holiday chef" for my family. Other activities I enjoy are playing at the park or pool with my 3 year old niece, Dezaray. Dezaray loves the kitchen, and I enjoy letting her "cook" in the kitchen with "Auntie", we like to bake cookies and cupcakes and make casseroles and homemade pizza. We also enjoy snuggling on the couch and watching "princess movies" together too. She is the "ray" of sunshine that warms her Auntie's heart. My favorite part about being a PTA is it is so rewarding for me as a therapist to watch my patients progress and achieve their goals. As a PTA I enjoy seeing my patients achieve their goals and to know I had a part in helping them achieve this is truly rewarding for me. As a Lymphatic Therapist, I enjoy helping my patient reduce the swelling due to Lymphedema and see the patient be able to return to their ADL's without limitations. My favorite thing about being part of the TBTW team is the friendly, positive environment, working together as a team treating patients, and having the amazing opportunity to give back to the community through not only my job as a therapist but through the other avenues TBTW uses to give back to the Lillington community.
