Meet Elise


About Elise

I’m Elise Strickland, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Clinical PT Supervisor and Yoga Instructor in training at The Wellness Center and Yoga Therapies. I graduated from Midwestern University in 2012 and spent the last 6 years gaining experience in various settings. I worked in an outpatient orthopedic clinic, 360 Physical Therapy performing outpatient orthopedic, spine and prenatal therapy to expectant mothers as well as women post mastectomy. I later left and moved to St. Joseph’s Hospital establishing a physical therapy program within the Emergency room, working on the cardiac, neuro, observation and trauma floors as well as assisting with expectant mamas on bed rest as well as observing and interacting with the neonatal population. I had always had a strong passion for Women’s Health therapy & Pediatrics but it wasn’t until I joined The Wellness Center that those passions were able to be combined. Since joining the team in 2017, I have learned so much such as the
importance of combining traditional medicine with manual therapy and holistic therapies to address all elements of a person. Aside from being a Physical Therapist, I am also a wife to Michael and mother to Logan, our amazing 2.5 yr old little boy. My pregnancy, delivery - an unplanned emergency C-section and recovery process furthered my passion for providing quality care to expectant and postpartum mamas. Amey and I met this past year and realized our passions and dreams were one in and of the same, providing quality care and education to both fellow mama’s and their littles while also providing them a safe, comforting place & a “tribe” to join. It takes a tribe to raise a child and we welcome you to join ours. #MamaTribe
