Team Quick Facts
What is your favorite way to spend the weekend?
My favorite way to spend my weekends are to pack up the car with all our camping gear and the dogs and head to the mountains or a beach. I love spending the weekends without technology. It is always good to get a reset on the soul and take advantage of some quality time with beautiful views of the sunrise/sunsets.
What is your favorite thing about what you do?
My favorite thing about being a PT is having the skills and knowledge to help people improve their overall quality of life. To take a person who is injured or in pain and be able to relieve their pain and get the back to the activities and hobbies they love. I love sharing my skills and teaching patients how to be a better version of themselves and learn how to manage their bodies.
What is your favorite food/meal?
My favorite meal would have to be making home-cooked steak, crab legs, garlic mashed potatoes, broccolini, soup, and salad with my mother because it is better than any restaurant out there and I always want it on.
Kaley is Synergy's newest doctor of physical therapy.
Kaley may be new to Arizona but one thing she is not new to is the outpatient therapy world. She has wanted to be a therapist since she could remember. She grew up going to work with her mom, who is an Occupational Therapist, and lived in a household full of sports. Kaley has also had her fair share of physical therapy while recovering from two ankle surgeries and other sports-related injuries over the years. This field has become a part of who she is and she will continue to share her passion with those around her.
She received her Bachelor of Arts & Science from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois where she was captain of the women’s soccer team. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from West Coast University in Los Angeles, California. Since coming to Arizona she has become certified in Dry Needling. She is also pursuing additional certifications, such as becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified. Kaley currently holds a Level 1 TPI Certification and is working toward Level 2. Kaley is a firm believer in continuing education in order to provide her patients with the best care possible. Her goal for herself is to help her patients get back to living the pain-free lifestyle they want.
In her free time, Kaley enjoys staying active by running, hiking, and playing any type of recreational sport she can! She enjoys road trips and traveling, especially when it involves heading back to the Chicagoland area to visit family and friends. When she is not working, traveling, or staying active she likes to unravel by cooking, watching movies, or “escaping” to the mountains/water.
