Over the past 20 years, Ellie has worked in a variety of rehabilitation settings including aquatic therapy, home health, and outpatient orthopedics. In that time, she also furthered her education becoming a certified personal trainer and a certified yoga instructor. Ellie's approach to healing is integrative in nature, educating patients on the importance of the mind-body connection, diet, nutrition, and exercise to maximize the healing process.
