Sarah received a doctoral degree in physical therapy in 2019 from St. Francis University. She started for NovaCare in 2019 in the Pittsburgh region and has covered multiple clinics until June 2022 when she found home in our Vandergrift center. She has interest in orthopedic patients, from her own previous ACL injuries. She completed the Functional Capacity Evaluation course, and uses this knowledge to help workers' compensation patients return to work. She enjoys completing projects around the house with her husband, and many outdoor activities such as hiking, gardening, traveling and scuba diving.

Some of his hobbies include gardening, home brewing and wood working.
