To the patients, clients, and staff at Appalachian Physical Therapy:
Many of you have seen me around or have worked with me over the past four months. My name is Parker Reynolds and I have had the privilege of completing my final physical therapy school clinical rotation at Appalachian Physical Therapy working under the guidance and teaching of Dr. Adam van Nortwick. I am finishing my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at the Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences through Mary Baldwin University and will be graduating at the end of May, 2018. I completed my undergraduate studies in 2014 at the University of Virginia Curry School of Education with a B.S.Ed. in Kinesiology (the study of movement) and a concentration in sports medicine. In fact, I am a Rockingham County native and graduated from Spotswood High School in 2010.
I wanted to take an opportunity to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to all of the patients and clients I have had the pleasure of working with over the past four months. Because of your willingness to receive care from a student physical therapist and your faith in me, I have been able to grow, develop, and learn so much during my time at Appalachian Physical Therapy. I will take many lessons learned here as I begin the transition from student to fully practicing clinician in the next few months. Though my time here has come to an end, it has been an absolute honor to serve my home community. I wish everyone the best of luck and encourage you all to stay active and keep moving!
Parker Reynolds, SPT
