Kelly Phillips PT, DPT, OCS, MPH
Doctor of Physical Therapy
Kelly is the founder and owner of True North Physical Therapy and Wellness. She holds a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University, a Master’s in Public Health from Virginia Tech, as well as Bachelor of Science degrees in biology and human nutrition, foods, and exercise, also from Virginia Tech. She is also a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist. Kelly was a competitive gymnast for 14 years and then an NCAA Division-I All-American pole-vaulter at Virginia Tech. Her positive experience as a patient and desire to help others were instrumental in choosing to become a physical therapist.
Kelly has a passion for providing sport-specific programming for performance, injury prevention, and rehabilitation, but enjoys working with all active individuals looking for progress. Kelly started True North after becoming frustrated with the traditional clinical setting, which is driven by insurance and productivity standards taking focus and energy away from patient-care. Now, she can provide comprehensive, best-practice care and give her patients the attention, energy, and empathy they deserve.
