Joanna knew at a young age that she had a passion for the medical field. Her decision to become a PT came after she saw her father have hand surgery and subsequently complete the rehab process.

She especially enjoys treating patients with orthopedic injuries and post operative cases.

“My treatment philosophy is to make sure each patient is thoroughly educated about their condition or injury and to guide them through the treatments with compassion and respect so that they can achieve their goals.”

Outside of the office, Joanna enjoys remaining active, exercising and traveling. Having just recently moved to Williamsburg, she is also enjoying exploring all the colonial capitol has to offer.

Joanna lives by the advice: Always treat people with kindness and respect and as you would hope to be treated in return.

Many of the physical therapists at Tidewater Physical Therapy Inc. hold Direct Access Certification through the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy.

Joanna holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
