Sarah Taylor, PT, DPT
Sarah was born and raised a “Buckeye” in Ohio and graduated with her degrees from The Ohio State University. Combining her interest in human anatomy, the long list of sports, dance, and music she has participated in throughout her life, and her desire to help individuals return to their specific passions, she felt a career in physical therapy was a perfect fit. During her clinical rotations, she took special interest in orthopaedics, sports, overuse injury in musicians and manual therapy. She delved into her professional career as a Physical Therapist (PT) at The Ohio State University Medical Center Outpatient Rehabilitation, treating a wide range of patients with orthopaedic impairments and also performing individual and group aquatic therapy. In southwest Washington, she strengthened her medical knowledge by exploring acute care rehabilitation at PeaceHealth St. John’s Medical Center and assisted in developing an emergency department PT referral system.
Now happily in Seattle, she has been working at MTI Physical Therapy since June of 2011. After completing the Ola Grimsby Institute (OGI) Residency Program in 2012, she is now pursuing the 2013 OGI Fellowship Program, gaining further knowledge in advanced manual therapy techniques and problem solving for more efficient rehabilitation with enhanced patient outcomes.
Outside of work, she loves being outside with her Siberian Husky, running, rowing, hiking and camping and is always interested in any new sport, hobby, food or adventure Seattle has to offer.
