Hi, I'm Dr. Shari. A Doctor of Physical Therapy and an Exercise Scientist. I am a Board Certified Specialist in Orthopedics, a part of the elite 4% of Physical Therapists in Ohio.
What does all of that mean?
I have an extensive knowledge in the science behind exercise, why specific exercises work, when to use them and how to adapt if injury or pain occurs. An interest and hobby since high school turned into a passionate career helping others.
In 2006, I graduated from The University of Toledo with a Bachelors in Exercise Science. I went on to the University of Mount Saint Joseph in Cincinnati where I became a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2009.
I never settle for "good enough" so I studied further and in 2012 became a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
I know that you can achieve any goal you set your mind to, you may just need a team to help and cheer you along the way. It's one reason I love working with runners, there is always a motivation and push to strive for more.
I personally enjoy running and weight lifting to stay healthy and stress free. I love sharing an active lifestyle with my husband and three young boys.
