Carie Ludvik, MPT
Personal: I currently work in the clinic part-time, and then enjoy spending time with my two children the other days of the week. I was born and raised mostly in the south suburban area and also lived for a few years in Northern and Southern California. Outside of work I enjoy playing soccer in a womens' league, running, snowboarding, cycling, hiking, and spending time with my family.
Professional: I have been an orthopedic physical therapist for over 14 years. I enjoy the problem solving and variation that each patient and their injury bring into the clinic that is uniquely their own. I strive to create personalized treatment to every patient I work with. I am ASTYM certified and have also completed multiple courses towards a manual therapy certification.
"I chose to become a PT in high school after volunteering in a clinic. I enjoyed the time spent with patients, dynamic work environment, helping people, and ever changing variety in patient injuries to challenge my problem solving skills."

Colleen Steeves, PTA
Personal: On my off days I try my best to stay active. I enjoy running and biking outdoors. I would like to think of myself as a pretty adventurous person. I also enjoy a good book and an even better cup of coffee. I love doing all those things with my family, friends, and dog.

The thing I love the most is the connections I am able to make with people in all walks of life, and the privilege to provide them with excellent care."
Joe Tascone, Rehabilitation Technician
Personal: I enjoy anything outdoors, whether it is hiking, fishing, camping, white water rafting, mountain biking, kayaking, or rock climbing. I’m a workout enthusiast and strongly believe in staying active and appreciating the little things in life. I have the best family, friends, coworkers and dog a man could ever ask for!

Angie Trost, Office Coordinator
Personal: In my free time I love working out, looking up and making new healthy recipes, reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
Professional: Associate of Arts
"I knew I wanted a job that would somehow make a difference in people’s life. Even though I am not providing PT care, I hope that when a patient walks through the door they feel welcome and cared for. Often times I get to be the first and last face they see (coming and going from the clinic). It’s such a blessing to be able to share a smile and help the patients in any way I can. I love being able to say that we are all about patient care and meaning every word of it. I like a busy working environment that provides a challenge and yet provides an authentic team working environment."

Michelle Deering, PT, OCS
Personal: I enjoy most things outdoors. Hiking, biking, and boating are among my favorite things to do but anything I can do that allows me to spend time with family and friends is what brings me joy. I have three children who are essentially grown and visiting them keeps our weekends busy.
Professional: I have been a board certified specialist in orthopedics for 20 years and completed additional course work in treatment of knee, ankle, shoulder and back injuries, post-surgical joint replacement therapy, cervical and thoracic spine and lumbar functional stabilization training, soft tissue imbalance management as well as patellofemoral and TMJ treatment. I have also spent many years in the specialization of treatment, prevention and screening for ACL injuries in athletes and have a personal interest in the treatment of TMJ dysfunctions.
"Physical therapy has allowed me to help people on a daily basis to move from a point of pain, weakness and sometimes disability to return to a pain-free life of exercise, activity and confidence to do everything they want to do – whether that is return to work, compete in a sport or simply sleep through the night without pain! I also have been blessed to work with some of the most caring, genuine and dedicated people you’d ever want to meet. We really are like a family and treat our patients like family members too. I’ve been a therapist a long time and I still love my job!"
