After completing an undergraduate degree at Rutgers University, and a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at Duke University, Abby owned and operated Sports Training Physical Therapy, PC (STPT), a multi-site independent PT practice affiliated with the Sports Training Institute (STI) in New York. While associated with STI, Abby provided consulting services to establish PT sites in New York, California and New Jersey. After the 1996 sale of STPT to HealthSouth, Abby continued on as Director of three Manhattan HealthSouth locations until becoming a founding partner at Recovery Physical Therapy (RPT) in 2000. She relinquished her Director’s position at RPT in April of 2011 to relocate to Seattle to join her husband, Dave, who is the television voice of the Seattle Mariners.
In addition to lecturing at many sports medicine conferences and working with weekend warriors of all ages, Abby had the pleasure of providing care to countless professional and collegiate athletes, celebrities, and political figures during her physical therapy career.
