Hi, I'm April!

My name is Dr. April and my focus is YOU!

I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a B.S. in Exercise Sports Science in 2013 and the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in April 2017.

Shortly after graduation, I began working as a travel therapist. This afforded me the opportunity to gain experience in Orthopedics from Acute Care to Outpatient. I have a background in treating varying pathologies, ranging from ACL reconstruction, total joint replacement to rotator cuff repair. As a Physical Therapist, my goal is to help you reach your goals! You can be sure to receive treatment protocols that are distinctive and functional in nature. After a thorough evaluation of your injury, I will prescribe individualized exercises and stretches. I will also provide education about your specific injury and how to prevent re-injury
