Our Faculty

Mercer's PTA program is proud to have two highly qualified full time faculty members within the PTA Program. Both are actively involved within the American Physical Therapy Association and have diverse interest areas outside of the college including clinical practice, community service, the role of technology in the teaching environment, families, hobbies and a strong commitment to the profession of physical therapy and the evolving role of the physical therapist assistant.
