PT, DPT, OCS, WCS, CLT
Christin received her undergraduate degree in kinesiology and psychology from Gordon College and Doctor of Physical Therapy from Springfield College, MA in 2013. Following completion of an orthopaedic residency and board certification, she completed a year long pelvic health residency and lymphedema certification training program. She became board certified in Pelvic Floor Therapy in 2018.
In the pursuit of her passionate interest in pain neuroscience and public health, she became one of the first physical therapists treating patients on a corporate Telehealth platform, and used this unique experience to champion a world-class telehealth program at Agile Physical Therapy in 2018 aimed at providing virtual physical therapy to patients across California.
And now, she’s made that knowledge available in this concise and thorough Telehealth Training program, designed to help aspiring physical therapists take control of their careers and help more people from anywhere in the world.
