Olivia graduated from Illinois Central College in May 2017, receiving her associates in the Physical Therapy Assistant Program. Olivia injured her ankle while playing volleyball at South Suburban College, and due to her injury, she attended physical therapy for a few months. During her time in Physical Therapy, Olivia fell in love the environment of Physical Therapy. She got to witness how therapists helped to rehabilitate people every day and accomplish their goal of returning back to life, work, or sports.
Olivia has a wide skill set when it comes to the physical therapy field and has been trained in aquatic therapy, sports medicine, orthopedics, and workmen’s compensation. In addition to those areas, Olivia specializes in working with Parkinson’s patients and holds additional certification from LSVT BIG ®, a clinical certification specializing in Parkinson’s Disease.
