Emily H., PT, DPT is the Senior Physical Therapist at Pivot’s Oyster Point clinic. She began working for Pivot Physical Therapy in 2021, originally at the Executive Drive clinic in Hampton, VA. She was inspired to become a physical therapist after seeing how greatly her mother benefitted from physical therapy while recovering from surgery.
Emily grew up in Virginia Beach, VA. She graduated with honors from Old Dominion University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science in 2017. She then completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Old Dominion University and earned her professional licensure in May 2020.
Prior to working in the outpatient physical therapy setting, Emily worked in skilled nursing facilities treating acute orthopedic and neurological interventions. She also worked with acutely ill patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, assisting them with positioning and mobility. This experience allowed Emily to understand the value of exercise and movement.
Emily loves to treat orthopedic and sport-related injuries. She especially likes to work with post-operative patients so that she can follow them throughout their entire course of care. She is very compassionate and caring. She is interested in pursuing Dry Needling and Athletico’s Gymnastics and Cheerleading Program to allow her to better serve her patients.
Outside of the clinic, Emily enjoys running, completing house projects, golfing, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
