Owner, Physical Therapist
While pursuing a degree in Exercise Science at the University of Dayton, Mandi started her career by helping people reach their goals as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. She continued her studies at the University of Dayton in Physical Therapy school with research endeavors focused on treatment interventions for the hypermobile patient population and vestibular rehabilitation. During physical therapy school, Mandi also traveled to China to experience Eastern Medicine at Nanjing Medical University. She graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2011.
After working in several different orthopedic clinics across the country as a traveling physical therapist for two years, Mandi sought a long-term position in a clinic that encompassed a model of true healthcare – one that valued and empowered patients, while also providing the highest level of evidence-based care. She found that at Active!
Mandi has been at Active since 2013. She specializes in treatment of the spine, jaw, and vestibular dysfunctions, has advanced training in trigger point dry needling and manual therapy techniques including joint manipulation, mobilization, and muscle energy. Mandi also serves as the Vice Chair for the Ohio Physical Therapy Association’s Central District and is a Certified Clinical Instructor for doctor of physical therapy students.
Mandi treats patients at the Hilliard clinic and hosts a monthly group class for those suffering from Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome (extreme joint hypermobility). She also treats at CrossFit Grandview, helping Games athlete’s and weekend warriors.
Mandi is originally from Akron, Ohio, but now resides in Clintonville with her husband, Doug and their dog, Griffey. She enjoys being ACTIVE – hiking, yogaing, traveling, CrossFitting, and empowering her patients to be ACTIVE too!
