My name is Lexi, and I am so excited to be a physical therapist at Orthopaedics Plus! I knew I wanted to become a PT from a young age, where growing up as a competitive gymnast I had countless injuries of which physical therapy helped me return to the sport. I became fascinated with the human body and the ways we are able to come back from being injured with the help of manual therapy and exercise. I also quickly realized how impactful a strong patient-therapist relationship can be to having a successful rehabilitation experience.
I have had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the OP team for many years now, beginning in 2016 when I received the Orthopaedics Plus scholarship for Burlington High School. From there, I went onto the University of Rhode Island to receive my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. The summer following my sophomore year of undergrad I began working at OP as a rehab technician. This confirmed my love for physical therapy and the desire to continue schooling. I fell in love with the idea of helping people get back to their previous activity level following an injury and having such a strong impact on their experience. Next I went onto Sacred Heart University to receive my Doctor of Physical Therapy. I have always loved exercise and had a passion for sharing this with others. I grew up as a gymnast, dancer, and track athlete and have continued to practice strength and endurance training post-grad. It is such a gift to be able to move our bodies in the ways we can and having an active lifestyle is very important to me.
Outside of OP, you can find me at the gym, running to get a coffee at Dunkin or Starbucks, and most definitely at the beach in the summertime. I love food and enjoy trying new restaurants around the Northshore and Boston area. I love spending time with my family and friends, I am the oldest of six kids and am constantly telling stories about my crazy family. I am so excited to meet you all here at OP!
