Susan earned her Physical Therapy degree from the University of Louisville and holds a bachelor’s degree from Northern Kentucky University and a master’s from the University of North Carolina- Greensboro. She has been practicing in the Louisville area since 1997. In addition to owning her own practice since 2001, Susan is an active member with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), Kentucky Physical Therapy Association, National Women’s Health Section Member, Private Practice Section of the APTA, International Pelvic Pain Society, International Continence Society, and the International Children’s Continence Society.
Susan has spent her entire career focusing on research and clinical practice in the areas of pelvic health for women, men and children and women’s health issues. This coupled with a specialization in spine has allowed her to grow her clinical skills to become a recognized leader in the Greater Louisville area for the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.
Susan has also been recognized at the national level and was a cover story for the Physical Therapy Magazine which is a nationwide magazine of the American Physical Therapy Association. Susan has had the opportunity to be published in a variety of media and very much enjoys lecturing at the local, regional and state level to health care providers and to the public to continually promote, educate and empower her audience with the knowledge to address pelvic health and women’s health issues completely.
On a daily basis, Susan strives to create an environment at Dunn Physical Therapy where patients feel they are individuals receiving one-on-one care and that they feel empowered with the knowledge to be an active partner in their care with their clinician. She subscribes to the philosophy that your patients “don’t care what you know until they know that you care.” Today’s healthcare environment is forever changing and not always for the better. But at Dunn Physical Therapy, Susan and her team work every day to make sure that every patient that walks through our doors will know that we care.
Susan and her staff collectively have more experience and training than any other facility in the Greater Louisville area in their areas of specialization and she is honored to be the head of, and a part of the Dunn Physical Therapy team.
In her free time Susan enjoys time with her husband, children and dog especially if that involves camping trips, running or travel.
