LLA Spotlight Feature: Alexa Bachmann
We have amazing therapists at LLA and want to showcase them to you! This week, meet Alexa Bachmann!
Alexa is a Physical Therapist who has been with LLA for two years. She serves clients in our Hudson office as well Portage County Board of Developmental Disabilities Happy Day School and Early Intervention Program. She became a Physical Therapist after suffering a sports injury in high school and learning she wanted to work with adolescents with sports injuries. However, after a pediatric clinical rotation during school, she knew she wanted to work with pediatrics! Her favorite part of being a Physical Therapist is having the privilege of treating children long term and building relationships with them and their family.
Let’s get to know Alexa better!
Describe your role at LLA:
