Meet Abby, DPT Student – Elon University
I am a current a 3rd year DPT student at Elon University. I grew up in an extremely small town in Minnesota and moved to Pennsylvania for Undergrad where I attended Shippensburg University and received my B.S. in Exercise Science in 2017. I have been involved in sports ever since I could remember. Although I did not play on a college sports team, I continued to be active during undergrad in intramurals and a local co-ed volleyball league. I also had a passion to learn and understand powerlifting and decided to join a CrossFit gym where I learned new skills that I continue to use to this day! Recently, I’ve taken up running as this has been the most challenging for me to progress with so far. I’m hoping my experiences with my athletic background can be a resource for my patients while also help me to connect and understand my future patients.
Meet Kristen, DPT Student – Touro College

Meet Kellen Cannon, DPT Student
I’m so excited to learn more from professionals that are equally as passionate as I am about serving the athletic community and beyond.
