Joyce Thompson has 50 years of experience as a physical therapist, 10 of those years on San Juan Island, as founder and therapist of Islanders Physical Therapy.

She’s proud of her professional experience, and equally proud to “pass it forward” to her staff, and to learn from them too. This applies especially to Lisa Alexander, the new physical therapist, who holds three degrees in physical therapy and is credentialed as a clinical instructor by the American Physical Therapy Association.

Alexander holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Kansas, another Bachelor of Science (honors) in physiotherapy from the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, and a Doctor of Physical Therapy  from Northern Arizona University. She’s been a physical therapist since 1998, has “worked with patients from birth to 100 years old,” and is also credentialed as a clinical instructor in physiotherapy by the American Physical Therapy Association.

Thompson commented that Alexander “completes our full-service staff of therapy professionals,” which also includes occupational therapist Suzie Nichols, speech and language Pathologist Patti Bjarnason and physical therapist Ashley Paull.
