Our fifth location, in historic Downtown Newburgh, was established in order to provide a change from the norm of physical therapy in the region. We wanted people to be able to see the difference between just getting physical therapy and having a physical therapist – one professional who listens and understands your personal needs and takes time to explain what is going on and why in order to provide the most effective care.

This clinic provides an optimal place for rehabilitation following sports and running injuries, post-operative care, return to activity, and daily living. Morgan is excited to bring personalized physical therapy, along with running analyses and personal training services, to the people of this region.

She would like patients to feel that our team cares about them and treats them like family. She feels that each experience a patient has with us should be positive and rewarding. Morgan provides detailed running analysis for patients and incorporates various techniques for running correctives.

She enjoys eating all variations of food, visiting friends and family, and traveling and vacationing to South Carolina. She has a fur baby named Ryder. He is a shepherd-shar pei mix who loves sleeping and treats almost as much as she does.

During her time at the University of Evansville, she was actively involved in working with the Purple Aces and local high school athletic teams. She also enjoyed spending her time volunteering for the Physical Therapy Program’s Pro Bono organization, Ace CARE.

Mattie was drawn to the field of physical therapy because of her passion for health and wellness, developing relationships with patients, and serving her community. She particularly enjoys education and loves to learn new things. She hopes that she can teach you more about the world of physical therapy and that in turn you will teach her more about your area of interest.

In her free time, Mattie loves watching sports, particularly football and basketball, and is a big New England Patriots fan. She enjoys taking walks, reading, and spending time with friends and family. For fun, she has recently started learning to golf and trying to cook new recipes. She is very excited to join the RPI family and to begin meeting people in her new home of Newburgh!

Jenna believes that people should be able to keep doing what they love for as long as possible. She is passionate about helping patients do more than they ever thought possible and loves to be a part of that journey. She loves learning and if you ask what she is currently reading there is a chance she will tell you more than you ever wanted to know.

Jenna can be persuaded to try any sport or physical activity. She loves to hike, climb, and play golf (despite being a frustrated rookie). She previously served as the team PT for the women’s basketball and women’s volleyball team at UE and now is working toward becoming their superfan. She loves the New York Giants, peanut M&M’s, and visiting National Parks.
