Amanda Weller, PTA
Amanda worked with disabled clients for a non-profit company in Missoula (Opportunity Resources Inc.), where she first discovered how much PT can improve quality of life. While pregnant she struggled getting quality exercise due to high fatigue and severe hip pain, but found an aquatic aerobics class, which helped significantly, and that is when she knew firsthand how effective aquatic therapy is. After having a child, she decided to go back to school, and the PTA program at FVCC seemed like the perfect choice for her. Then she got lucky and was able to start as a PTA after obtaining her degree in late summer 2020 at OrthoRehab’s Specialty & Aquatic Therapy Clinic, where she gets to enjoy doing what she loves! Amanda and her family love to camp, boat, kayak, paddle board, snowshoe, bike, and take part in pretty much anything and everything this beautiful valley has to offer!
