Patsy specializes in physical therapy evaluation and treatment planning for infants and children, providing treatment plans that families can follow at home.
To meet the unique needs of pediatric physical therapy patients, Patsy considers the activities and settings of children’s daily lives – school or play time, for example – and works to create therapy plans that can be incorporated in those settings, as well as treatment plans that are respectful of each family’s strengths and limitations.
Patsy worked for 15 years at the Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City in various capacities, including director of outpatient therapy and director of family centered services. Prior to joining Samaritan, Patsy spent five years serving pediatric patients through the Linn Benton Lincoln Education Service District.
