Ali Hoegel is from Yorktown, Virginia. She graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. She continued her passion for physical therapy by attending Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Ali completed her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2014 with Honors. During her education at Emory, Ali completed advanced courses in sports rehabilitation, extremities, and Pilates. Currently, she is planning to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist to further her knowledge in strength and conditioning.

Ali grew up playing field hockey and taking dance classes. Sports have played a heavy role in her life, driving a passion to work with athletes of all ages. Ali has used her dancing knowledge to treat professional performers on the road in National tours. She performed self-treatment and injury prevention workshops, in addition to one on one treatment, in shows such as Wicked, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera and Flashdance. Ali also has experience working with middle and high school athletes in the clinic.

Ali also explored a special interest in the practice of Pilates in conjunction with physical therapy. She is Balanced Body Mat 1 certified and is planning on continuing her knowledge by becoming Mat 2 certified. Ali believes Pilates plays a major role in rehabilitating athletes as well as patients who experience low back pain and SI joint dysfunction.

When not treating patients, Ali enjoys taking dance classes, going to Barre classes, and participating in outdoor activities with her husband, Phil, and their dog, Keller. Ali loves watching and cheering for the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. She and her husband also enjoy trying new restaurants around the Atlanta area.
