Lindsey Hanna, MS, PT, DPT graduated from Bradley University in Peoria, IL in May 2016 with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. She worked as an exercise physiologist in cardiac and cancer rehab for several years before deciding to return to school to pursue her degree in physical therapy. Her passion for working with the cancer rehab population is the reason she decided to become a physical therapist. Seeing the direct impact that exercise made in the lives of her cancer rehab participants drove her to want to do more to help. In her spare time, she enjoys working out, reading, exploring the city, and being near the lakefront as much as possible.
