Andrea Vos, PTA
During Andrea’s career as a dancer and fitness instructor, she became increasingly interested in helping people attain and improve wellness through movement and natural means. Her experience as a Certified Personal Trainer and as a Chiropractic Assistant provided a great introduction, but never fully addressed the complete picture of why someone is having pain or experiencing difficulty executing a movement properly and then how to solve this more comprehensively. She decided to go back to school and become a Physical Therapist Assistant in order to work hands-on with people as individuals, each with their unique needs and goals, and make a positive impact by teaching them how to allow their bodies to heal themselves. She is fortunate to be a part of the team at Cascade – Silver Lake and to work part-time at our sister clinic, Summit in Snohomish, as she is regularly exposed to new and different ideas and techniques from a variety of experienced Physical Therapists. Additionally, she enjoys the opportunities to advance and expand her skills both as a PTA and a Group Fitness Instructor with continuing education courses, such as Muscle Energy Technique, PNF, and different fitness formats. Outside of the clinic, she specializes in teaching Barre fitness classes which are a huge complement to the principles of rehab exercise and provide a safe environment for students to learn stability and core control as well as sculpt their figures. In her spare time, she enjoys taking and teaching dance classes, “dinking”, reading, bike riding, hiking, and traveling both internationally and exploring the beautiful PACNW. After relocating to Seattle from Chicago in 2011 with her amazing fiancée, Mohamed, she is happy that her immediate family is now all within reasonable driving distance from each other for the first time in many years, including her step-children, whom are best described as “awesome”.
