Lindsey Knox, DPT, COMT
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: I became a physical therapist because of the unique relationship I am able to build with each patient throughout his or her rehabilitation. I enjoy not only being a physical therapist to help improve patients’ physical condition but also to gain a good rapport and trust.
Continuing Education Commitment: I am committed to continuing my education and growing as a physical therapist. After completing a two-year program that specialized in manual therapy, I received my COMT, certified orthopedic manual therapist. I have also taken numerous courses involving Kinesio Tape, which allowed me to become a certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner.
Personal Interests: In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and staying physically active with yoga and hiking.
Educational Background: I have received a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Shenandoah University, a private college in Virginia and also hold a B.S. in Biology from the University of Idaho where I was a Division I scholarship athlete. I am currently enrolled in Seattle Pacific University’s MBA program and will complete this degree over the next few years.
Tim Peterson, PT
Why I am a Physical Therapist: When volunteering at a local hospital by chance I was placed in the Physical Therapy department. I immediately found that I enjoyed helping people solve their physical problems. The opportunity to continue to educate and help my patients have a better quality of life is the reason I have continued in this profession for the past thirty five years.
Continuing Education Commitment: I’m committed to the process of continually being open to learn new techniques and skills through attending conferences and seminars, but also from other Physical Therapists and doctors. I also feel that part of my commitment to education is to be available to help teach and mentor other Physical Therapists or assistants with less experience. I have had thirty years of on the field experience in sports injuries of all types and attended NAIOMT through level 3.
Personal Interests: I enjoy watching and participating in all sports especially baseball and football. I love to explore new areas of the Northwest with my wife in our TAB trailer and I enjoy the adventure of fly fishing a wilderness lake or river.
Educational Background: Bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy, California State University Long Beach 1978.
Kara Jordan, PT, MPT
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: I first became interested in physical therapy after watching my father rehabilitate his knee when I was in junior high school. Then, I personally participated in physical therapy several times while I was a high school athlete. I loved the concept that I could work with people in an active setting, helping them return to full functional capacity. I still believe that physical therapists truly do have the best jobs!
Continuing Education Commitment: Continuing my education as a physical therapist is of the utmost importance to me personally and to our profession. Over my years of experience, I have participated in wide variety of continuing education opportunities to improve my orthopedic clinical competence, including manual skills, Kinesiotaping, exercise for special population, and aquatic therapy. I have also taken courses for Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Hippotherapy (Level 1 certified), and I am a certified CI (clinical instructor) through the APTA.
Personal Interests: In my time away from work, you can find me spending time with my husband and two young children. We love to travel, ride our bikes, fish, hike, and enjoy anything that brings us into the great outdoors! As a family, we place a high value on being part of our local church and giving back to our community.
Educational Background: I received my Masters in Physical Therapy degree from the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine in 2001, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from the same institution in 2000.
Nick Carter, DPT
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: I knew early on I wanted to be a physical therapist when I began having chronic ankle sprains and started going to PT myself. MY PT made a big impact on my life and helped me to gain stability and strength that propelled me to greater heights in my sports. The ability to impact people’s lives in a positive way and allow them to achieve their personal goals has continued to push me to be a better physical therapist.
Continuing Education Commitment: My continuing education interests include completing a fellowship in manual therapy. I am also pursuing certification in additional spinal techniques for the state of Washington. I believe in continuously expanding my knowledge to include new research, and to prevent an atrophied mind. The stagnant mind gets left behind.
Personal Interest: My personal interests are varied including playing and watching sports, reading, hiking, swimming, hunting, fishing, television, and most importantly, spending time with friends and family.
Educational Background: I graduated from WSU Vancouver with honors and earned a B.S. in Biology. I then completed my DPT at Eastern Washington University.
Andrea Vos, PTA
Why I Chose To Become a PTA: During my career as a dancer and fitness instructor, I became increasingly interested in helping people attain and improve wellness through movement and natural means. My experience as a Certified Personal Trainer and as a Chiropractic Assistant provided a great introduction, but never fully addressed the complete picture of why someone is having pain or experiencing difficulty executing a movement properly and then how to solve this more comprehensively. I decided to go back to school and become a Physical Therapist Assistant in order to work hands-on with people as individuals, each with their unique needs and goals, and make a positive impact by teaching them how to allow their bodies to heal themselves.
Continuing Education Commitment: I am fortunate to be a part of the team at Summit in Snohomish and to work part-time at our sister clinic, Cascade, in Silver Lake, as I am regularly exposed to new and different ideas and techniques from a variety of experienced Physical Therapists. Additionally, I enjoy the opportunities to advance and expand my skills both as a PTA and a Group Fitness Instructor with continuing education courses, such as Muscle Energy Technique, PNF, and different fitness formats. Outside of the clinic, I specialize in teaching Barre fitness classes which are a huge complement to the principles of rehab exercise and provide a safe environment for students to learn stability and core control as well as sculpt their figures.
Personal Interests: In my spare time, I enjoy taking and teaching dance classes, “dinking”, reading, bike riding, hiking, and travelling both internationally and exploring the beautiful PACNW. After relocating to Seattle from Chicago in 2011 with my amazing fiancée, Mohamed, I am happy that my immediate family is now all within reasonable driving distance from each other for the first time in many years, including my step-children, whom are best described as “awesome”.
