About Leda

I am a physical therapist and received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from Ohio University in 2019. I am currently practicing as an Orthopedic Physical Therapy Resident at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.

I am passionate about health in all facets of my life and use my writing to explore different ideas related to movement and health. My background includes obtaining a B.A. in psychology from Trinity University, playing/coaching NCAA Division III collegiate basketball, track & field, and cross country and working for five years in organic & sustainable agriculture.

Professional areas of interest for me include: neuroplasticity, chronic pain recovery, pain neuroscience education, gymnastics-style training, physical and neural adaptations after trauma, and movement in natural settings. I hope that some of this information sparks an interest with you and that you find it useful in your own pursuit of health through movement. Thanks for reading!             -Leda
