Blythe knew she wanted to become a Licensed Physical Therapy Assistant after a car accident in 2006. The time she spent in physical therapy for rehab opened her eyes to this new field.

“Almost immediately after discharge from PT, I quit my job with the City & became a PT tech to make sure I really wanted to go into the field.  I’m so glad I took that leap,” says Blythe.

Blythe’s favorite types of patients to treat are geriatric patients. “Patient care is my number one priority and hands-on therapy is key in getting results. Patients are individuals, not numbers,” she says.

Her most important treatment philosophy is that you get out of it what you put in.

Outside of the office you can find Blythe doing a variety of outdoor activities such as boating, running and kickboxing. She also enjoys cooking and baking as well.
