Meet The Team

At Southshore Physical Therapy, our team is made up of conscientious, dedicated therapists and staff who pride themselves in providing individual, focused attention.

We take the time to include our patients’ personal goals in their PT program and we educate them on their diagnosis, the normal biomechanics of their affected joint, how their deficits affect normal function, and how physical therapy will restore their normal function. This is the cornerstone of the Southshore Physical Therapy difference – we do this better than anyone.

She stealthily helps guide you through your physical therapy, anticipating your every move to make sure that your visit is seamless so that you make the most of your time with us. But she’s not rushing you – she is an old soul. You will not even realize that time is passing as she mesmerizes you with banter about her latest recipe or creation in the kitchen. If you’re lucky she may even bring a taste to the clinic for you. Lexi’s interest in physical therapy began in high school where she worked as an assistant athletic trainer at Hahnville High School.

Ashley is like a high speed train on track to physical therapy school. She is a 2012 graduate of St. Mary’s Dominican High School, where she aced her academics while leading the soccer team (literally) as captain her junior and senior years. Not one to rest on her laurels, she moved to Jackson, Mississippi where she continued to crush her studies, graduating in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science at Belhaven University. But just studying would have been too easy for Ashley. She also continued to rip up the soccer circuit, leading (again as captain) the Belhaven Women’s Soccer Team for four years while earning her degree. Not exactly ready to hang up her cleats, earlier this year she played semi-professional soccer for Chattanooga FC (of the Women’s Premier Soccer League) as a defensive specialist. Ashley takes the offensive at Southshore, bringing her hard work ethic and contagious laugh with her, making sure that your physical therapy experience is engaging and fun!
