A native of Atlanta, Lindsey graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Florida. She continued to pursue her studies in Physical Therapy, and graduated with a Masters of Physical Therapy from UF in 2001, with distinction. Following 4 years of clinical practice in orthopedics, Lindsey began work on her Doctorate with a specialization in Sports Physical Therapy. She was awarded her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of St. Augustine in 2007. Lindsey completed her Doctoral thesis on the topic of ACL Injury Prevention in Female Athletes, and is passionate about helping her patients return to play.

Lindsey’s involvement in sports throughout her life led her to become very interested in sports and orthopedic injuries. She has completed over 400+ hours of continuing education and was one of seven PT’s to complete her Sports Therapy Certification from University of St. Augustine and NASMI, which included rigorous oral, written, and practical examinations with focus on injured athletes, and manual techniques for the shoulder, elbow, spine, hip, knee, and ankle.

Lindsey’s current clinical focus is in outpatient orthopedics and in the rehabilitation of the injured athlete.  She has been an integral part of the rehabilitation for players from the NBA, NHL, and PGA tour. Having completed many Sprint, Olympic and Half Ironman distance triathalons, as well as marathons and half marathons, Lindsey also has a passion for treating injured runners and triathletes.

Lindsey’s commitment to her profession and passion to help her patients achieve their goals has led her to become well known in the orthopedic community in Atlanta. She recently authored a chapter on Rehabilitation Principles in the 4th Edition of Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care and was honored with the Clinic of the Year award out of 39 clinics in 2007. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to realize her dream of opening her own PT clinic in the Spring of 2008 when Lindsey opened Atlanta Sport & Spine Physical Therapy.

In her personal time, Lindsey enjoys spending time with her husband Austin and their two rescue dogs, Dixie, Tex & Foxy. She also enjoys attending Florida Football games, training for triathalons, traveling and hanging out with friends and family.
