Morgan Mowers
PHYSICAL THERAPIST

Morgan has made quite the journey in becoming a physical therapist here at Finish Line PT. She started as a PT aide in 2014 during her undergraduate education, and then went on to assist our administrative team over summer and winter breaks as she studied to become a DPT at Rutgers School of Health Professions. Five years later, and a multitude of experience working with the Finish Line community, we welcome Morgan as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

 

Morgan has been strongly influenced by her father, who grew up in Seattle with next to nothing. At age 17, he joined the Marine Corps then went on to become a diver, building bridges underwater off the coasts of Caribbean countries. He ended up becoming the superintendent of a marine construction company. Now, he’s a happy resident of Myrtle Beach who plays golf 6 days a week and takes his dog Penny on daily beach trips.

 

Morgan has been interested in athletics her whole life. In high school, she played lacrosse and was even the team manager for her wrestling team! Morgan has run 15 half-marathons and one full marathon in 2016. She is currently training to complete the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon for her second 26.2! Morgan’s favorite distance is 10-miles and she is a big fan of the Broad Street Run in Philly. She also has experience as a running coach at the Rutger Runs Proud program where she taught inner-city girls in 1st-3rd grade about healthy lifestyles and running. Her community outreach doesn’t stop there, every year, Morgan participates in the SnowBowl at MetLife Stadium to raise money for the Special Olympics.

What I Like:

  • About working at FLPT: I love the atmosphere and feel at home when walking in the door. The drive to learn and become a better therapist is contagious. It’s inspiring to work with people who truly love what they do.
  • About FLPT patients: Motivation! It’s easy to help patients who are passionate about their health and motivated to get better.
  • About running/sports: Being active has been the best de-stressor during tough times and has been something I rely on regularly. I love that running allows me to get outside, explore new areas and help me tune in to myself.
