We are excited to welcome physical therapist Sarah Stafford, PT, DPT, MPH to Rebound! Sarah will be treating patients full-time at our Redmond Clinic.
Originally from Colorado Springs, Sarah received her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Pacific Lutheran University where she competed on the rowing and swimming teams. She went on to earn her Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Masters of Public Health (MPH) from the University of Montana in Missoula.
Sarah enjoys treating patients of all ages, and is passionate about guiding people through rehab to restore function and improve quality of life. Through Sarah’s DPT and MPH dual degree, she has strengthened her ability to advocate for patient needs by identifying complex barriers to healthcare access and collaborating with community members to develop and implement targeted solutions. Sarah feels that Rebound’s dedication to the community and high quality of patient care aligns perfectly with her values as a healthcare professional.
In her free time, she loves spending time outside hiking, especially climbing the Colorado “fourteeners,” paddle boarding, and playing with any dog she can. She also enjoys traveling, with a favorite trip being backpacking in New Zealand.
We asked Sarah a few questions to get to know her better!
What was the best vacation you’ve ever taken and why?
I spent a month in New Zealand on a backpacking trip which was incredible. I traveled around the South Island and completed several treks, swam in glacial lakes, and learned a lot about the culture.
What is one thing that can instantly make your day better?
I am a huge dog lover, so whenever I see a dog my day becomes at least 10x better. My favorite is a Golden Retriever, but any large-fluffy dog will do.
Do you have any hidden talents?
My record for the “chubby bunny” game is 37 grapes in my mouth at one time.
What food do you wish had zero calories?
Ice cream, specifically Moose Tracks.
What is your favorite month of the year and why?
My favorite month of the year is September because it is typically the start of Fall which means cooler temperatures and the trees changing colors.
