Tyler Cox, DPT, Clinic Director
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: My interest in physical therapy began at a young age, when I became interested in the biomechanics of the different sports with which I was involved. During my years as a collegiate athlete, I was able to experience the profession of physical therapy from a patient’s point of view and was incredibly grateful for the care that I received. These encounters motivate me to work closely with my patients to help them meet their personal goals beyond the physical milestones expected of them.
Continuing Education Commitment: My commitment to my patients relies on education. It is my personal responsibility as a Physical Therapist to be fully engaged in new techniques and relate them to my applicable patients. I am dedicated to expanding my knowledge as techniques and technologies are developed, and currently pursuing my Certification in Manual Therapy and Olympic Weight lifting.
Personal Interests: In my spare time, I enjoy being active, golfing, and supporting Seattle sports.
Educational Background: I received both my Doctorate in Physical Therapy and B.S. in Biology from the University of Washington. During my undergraduate years, I also attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, where I was a Division I scholarship athlete.
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.
Katie Tougas, PT, DPT
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: For me, physical therapy was the perfect mix of sports and science. Growing up I played many different sports and was in and out of PT many times myself and always had a positive experience. Now as a therapist, I enjoy getting to know each of my patients and building a partnership with them in order to work together towards the common goal of getting them better and back to normal life.
Continuing Education Commitment: The opportunity to continue learning is one of my favorite things about our profession. I am currently pursuing an Orthopedic Manual Therapy certification and am excited to continue expanding my breath of knowledge in the future.
Personal Interests: In my free time I enjoy getting outside to enjoy the PNW – especially hiking, running, and petting every dog I come in contact with.
Educational Background: I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Washington. Before that, I completed my undergraduate studies at Seattle University, while running Division I track.
Ryan Keaton, PT,DPT
Why I’m a Physical Therapist:I used to be an accountant believe it or not! I became fascinated with the human body when I experienced a long bout of chronic pain and ended up in a physical therapy clinic as a patient. I loved the environment and decided to pursue physical therapy as a new career. Since becoming a PT, I’ve loved working with people in the clinic, hearing their stories, and helping coach them through whatever they’re dealing with. I really like to motivate and educate people. I believe that’s the best thing we can do for our patients so that they can build self-confidence and independence. As a former triathlete and swimmer, I’ve dealt with my fair share of sports related injuries. I love working with athletes and helping them problem solve so they can get back to their sport.
Continuing Education Commitment: I’m always looking to expand my knowledge and build expertise in certain areas. It’s important we stay up to date on the latest research so that we’re using interventions that are backed by solid evidence.
Personal Interests: I enjoy anything outdoors: hiking, camping, running. On the weekends I’m usually at the climbing gym or outside.

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”.
Radhika Brady, PTA
I became a PTA to better understand the human body and how it works so that I could feel empowered to know what to do in different scenarios. So far, it helps not only my patients in their rehabilitation process, but also my family when they have aches and pains from everyday life.
I love to keep learning with continuing education as this field offers so many facets of evolving knowledge to further improve on how to help our bodies heal. I have taken many manual therapy courses, exercise focused courses and taping courses to continue to learn how to better help my patients, and I expect to continue with courses in my field to always strive to be in the know.
I have 2 kids and a dog who take up most of my time, other than when I am at work! However, I do enjoy reading, watching movies with the family, and going on mini adventures with my husband.
I graduated from Pima Medical Institute in 2012 with my AOS degree and have been a licensed practicing therapist assistant since!
