Physical Therapist Assistant
Emily Kester is a Physical Therapist Assistant at the Denbigh clinic in Newport News. Emily received her Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic Training through Averett University. After Averett, Emily was able to start her career path to becoming a PTA by attending South University in Virginia Beach, VA.
Emily had her fair share of rehabilitation as a young athlete, including two ACL reconstructions and two compartment release surgeries. These events led her to learn more about the field of physical therapy as well as being able to take her own experience and apply them to her treatments and to her patients. Her physical therapy assistant career has even taken her down to Mississippi for a year where she was able to work for a small outpatient clinic in which she was able to further develop her skills.
Outside of work, Emily enjoys spending time with her family and loved ones. She loves being able to get out and enjoy the fresh air whenever possible as well as being able to relax with her fur-babies on the weekends.
