Samaritan Physical Rehabilitation in Corvallis welcomes two new therapists

Nov 2,2012

Samaritan Physical Rehabilitation in Corvallis is pleased to welcome two new therapists, Josh Funk, DPT, and Rebecca Wolfe, ST.

As a licensed physical therapist, Josh is primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disability and the promotion of functional mobility, quality of life, and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and intervention.

Born and raised in the “Show Me State” of Missouri, Josh attained a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri and a doctoral degree from Washington University in St. Louis. Josh worked in Charleston, S.C., in a rehabilitation hospital before he and his wife, Sara, made the cross country journey to Corvallis to work at Good Sam.

Josh was introduced to physical therapy when working in the athletic training department with the MIzzou football team. From there Josh learned many different modalities of physical therapy, working in hospitals during both undergraduate and graduate school.

When away from work, Josh enjoys spending time with his wife, hiking, camping, biking, running and walking their dogs Lacy and Carlos.

Rebecca Wolfe, a speech therapist, currently works with adults needing swallowing treatments, cognitive training and speech language rehabilitation. She is also passionate about working with the younger population, including children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder, targeting diverse speech, language and social skill needs.

Rebecca has lived in Oregon since 1985 when her family moved from southern Germany. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Linfield College, and a master’s degree from the University of Oregon.

Now living in Eugene, Rebecca spends her free time traveling, enjoying the outdoors and growing vegetables.

Both Josh and Rebecca are accepting new patients and can be reached at (541) 768-5157.
