Amy Gwynn

One Thing I hope to get out of this Program: I hope to provide patient centered, evidence based care that will help patients get better faster and prevent future injuries by intervening globally as well as regionally.

My Biggest Professional Fear: I'm fearful of a patient feeling like they haven't been heard or considered during their care.

Where I will be professionally in 5 Years: I hope to continue to be working as a PT in the outpatient setting and have obtained the OCS designation. I also hope to have taken a SFMA course and be certified in dry needling. I hope to continue to regularly work with students as a credentialed CI and be involved as a clinician with research at universities as well.

Short Bio: Amy grew up in Raleigh, NC and attended UNC Chapel Hill for undergrad in exercise and sport science and PT school. In her spare time, Amy enjoys concerts, traveling, hiking, practicing Pilates and yoga.

My Biggest Professional Fear: Additional red tape in legislation that subdues the responsibility and growth of the profession.

Where I will be professionally in 5 Years: I will hopefully have my OCS certification, be certified in dry needling, have mentored a fellow OCS resident and be on my journey towards becoming a fellow of AAOMPT to help further the profession.
