Stacey P

- Research Program Mentor

DPT at University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences


Physical Therapy


Hello, my name is Stacey Pirtle. I am a physical therapist with a doctorate of physical therapy from theUniversity of St Augustine. I feel as if I have been in school my entire life. I would love it if I could be a professional student as a career. My passion for academics shows in my difference and continuous learning in psychology, exercise science, counseling, and physical therapy over the last ten years. Furthermore, I have ten years of experience as a medic in the US Air Force. I am currently working at an Inpatient Rehab Facility. My personal interest includes a lifelong love of running and exercise. I believe our bodies are capable of so much more than we currently do and you can continue to challenge it no matter your age. I am also a lifelong reader who enjoys all genres of reading but historical fiction is my favorite. I thoroughly enjoy helping others learn which lead to me being a tutor for lower tri students at my current school.
