Charelle and her family enjoy boating, hunting, fishing, crafting, spending time with family and friends and playing volleyball.
Charelle first became interested in physical therapy as an athlete in high school participating in movement performance training provided by a physical therapist. From there her love for PT grew as she tore her shoulder and needed a physical therapist to return her playing volleyball. Charelle loves outpatient physical therapy because of the variety of patients and injuries. She loves getting to know her patients and their stories and helping them return to doing what they love.
