Elizabeth Schorn Physical Therapist

“I appreciate and enjoy the opportunity that PTOSI has offered me to develop my interests, especially regarding sports injuries. I enjoy the challenge of working with all age groups and levels of athletes balanced by working with the “everyday” athletes. Away from work I enjoy many outdoor recreational activities, the theater, reading, and most importantly, spending time with my granddaughters and watching them grow and develop.”
