Megan Sisson, LPTA, CPT is a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. She holds specialty certifications in Senior Fitness and Functional Training. Megan also has a background in massage therapy. She has 27 years of experience working with patients. Megan is originally from Virginia, growing up in beautiful Charlottesville. She was always involved in sports as a competitive swimmer, as well as playing field hockey and lacrosse.
In 1994 Megan graduated from Randolph Macon College in Virginia with a degree in Psychology. That same year she became a Certified Massage Therapist, receiving her certification from Richmond Academy of Massage. After college, Megan worked as a Physical Therapy Tech and massage therapist for several years before returning to school to become a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant.
Upon graduation from John Tyler Community College, Megan’s first job as a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant was at a rehabilitation hospital. She spent 4 years there gaining valuable experience working with a wide range of patients recovering from surgeries, illness, and complex medical issues. Megan’s career then took her into the outpatient setting where she has spent the past 17 years honing her skills. With her different areas of education and variety of skill sets, Megan’s level of treatment for all patients is greatly enhanced. She is thrilled to be a part of this team because of The Gait Center’s philosophy of treating patients one-on-one with a truly patient focused care-model. Of course we, The Gait Center, feel very fortunate to have Megan on our team!
When Megan is not treating patients, she loves reading, going to the beach and spending time with her husband Andy and their two kids, Zach and Brooke.
