Alysha Grimes joined the Pivot team in November of 2020. She was born and raised in Bradford County. She graduated from Towanda High School in 2013 as the valedictorian of her class. Alysha earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from the University of Scranton in 2017. She completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Scranton in October 2020. She knew she wanted to be a physical therapist because of her love of sports in high school. She saw various teammates become injured and return to their favorite sports with the help of physical therapy. This ability to return people to the activities they love drew her to pursue a career in physical therapy.
When she is not in the clinic, she enjoys playing volleyball, reading, playing with her dogs, Bubbie, Max, and Lucy, and her cat, Rummie, and spending time with her family and friends.
