Janet Fowler, MPT, CMPT
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: I’ve always known I wanted a career path that involved helping people. I thought I could be the most helpful to my parents and family if I became a PT. From there the actual joy and desire of being a PT evolved for me. I consider myself very lucky to be doing what I enjoy.
Continuing Education Commitment: Learning never ends. I am drawn to classes that are based on functional biomechanics (of joints and of person) and neurologically sound in theory.
Personal Interests: Simplicity – being in the moment with my kids; holding hands with my husband; petting my dog and cat; having a good conversation; eating good food; traveling to new places; experiencing new things.
Educational Background: BS in Human Biology from EWU 1996, Masters of Physical Therapy from EWU 1998, Certified Manual Physical Therapist 2008, Vestibular Therapist Competency Certification 2012
Heather Klos, DPT, COMT, OCS
Why I’m a Physical Therapist: My path to becoming a physical therapist started from a desire of wanting to make a difference. Guidance from teachers and my parents helped lead me to this profession, which blended my early passions of athletics and science. As I studied the human body more in college, I became fascinated with how the smallest detail, even in a cell, could affect an entire system. I found this same consistency while studying biomechanics of the human body. I was amazed how the smallest change that altered normal movement patterns could create significant dysfunction over time, eventually causing pain. I enjoy acting like “Sherlock Holmes” in identifying and treating the underlying factors to help stimulate healing and return a person to pain free daily activity. That is a fun journey to go on with a patient!
Continuing Education Commitment: My goal is to continue to grow and learn from as many experts as possible. The knowledge gained from these experts I will always inspire me to push myself to learn more and never be content with where I am. I have chosen to take courses that emphasize excellent biomechanical evaluation skills and sound clinical reasoning.
Personal Interests: I love dogs, and am a proud owner of two wonderful boxers. That in itself at times seems like a full-time job working on draining their energy and training them to be polite dogs in public. I’ve played piano since the age of five years and cherished the opportunity to train as a classical pianist in college and accompany the University choir. Currently I’m content with working on individual pieces in my spare time. I grew up a “Blazer Believer” in Oregon and love the drama sports can provide. Especially when the Ducks play the Huskies!
Educational Background: Undergraduate degree from Pacific University with a major in exercise science and a minor in music. I earned my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Pacific University and have taken levels I-III from North American Institute of Manual Therapy including their Thoracic/Rib course. Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) earned 2012. Currently enrolled in an 18-month IMPACT program in the process of earning my certification in manual therapy (CMPT).

Linda Shuger, LMP
Graduated from Seattle Massage School and became licensed in 1994. I’ve been with Cascade Rehab at their Colby, Harbour Pt., and Silverlake locations since 1998. Started in the PT department and soon moved over to OT/Hand Therapy full time. OT allowed me to use my massage skills daily which I am thankful for and enjoy very much. I’ve worked with the best hand therapists over the years and I’ve learned so much from all of them!
