THERAPY STAFF

JIM LESLIE

PT, ATC, Director

BIO:

I became a Physical Therapist because as a senior in high school, I sprained my ACL. I needed physical therapy and Dave Kuhn looked like he really enjoyed his job and inspired me to become a Physical Therapist.

My favorite part of this job is improving a person’s quality of life with non-invasive and non-medical techniques.

Outside of work, I enjoy my family, being outdoors, hunting, and baseball.

JESSICA CONRAD

PT, DPT

BIO:

I became a Physical Therapist because I enjoy helping patients get back to the activities that they like to do, and to improve their overall quality of life and health.

Outside of work, I am a new mom as of July to a little boy and enjoy spending time with him and my husband at our home, and being outdoors

TODD TROMBLEY JR.

PT, DPT

BIO:

I became a Physical Therapist because when I was young, my great-grandma fell and broke her hip. It was then that I thought physical therapy would be something I would enjoy doing.

My favorite part of this job is helping people return to the activities they love.

Interesting fact about me is that I grew up in a desert my whole life and the rain and snow here is nice!

CHELSEA FRITCH

PT, DPT

BIO:

I became a Physical Therapist because I’ve always enjoyed learning about anatomy and physiology. What really drew me, specifically, to physical therapy was how we use movement to treat pain and prevent/recover from injury. It provides an opportunity to teach patients how to manage symptoms on their own and empowers them to take their health into their own hands.

My favorite part of my job is the holistic approach that we take to healthcare. We get more opportunities to spend with our patients and can look at the whole person and collaborate with their wants/needs to come up with a unique treatment plan.

Interesting fact about me, I started with IPT in 2012 as a PTA and with help and support of IPT, I attended University of Findlay’s PTA to DPT program in 2016 to become a PT. Best decision ever!

RACHAEL LIBERTY

PTA

BIO:

I knew from a young age I wanted to be a PTA after needing therapy from a soccer injury. I received multiple opinions from doctors who all told me I may not be able to play again. Then I met my therapist who made my love for playing sports possible again. From then on, I knew this career was right for me.

The best part of my job is building a rapport with each patient, and helping them get back to doing the things they love most. It’s extremely rewarding.

Outside of work, I love spending time with family, exploring the outdoors with the love of my life, and most of all, hanging out with my dog.
