Bo Renshaw, MSPT, ATCOwner
I was an athlete in high school and discovered physical therapy when I broke an ankle one summer. I was amazed at what a physical therapist could do without drugs or surgery. When I went to college, I remembered my physical therapy experience and decided to become a physical therapy volunteer, and I quickly found out that this is what I wanted to do with my life. And I've never regretted my decision since.

Interaction with my colleagues is very important. The first benefit that comes to mind is the free flow of information that has had a direct influence on my practice over the years. The second benefit is knowing that something I may have recommended to a colleague has made a difference for a patient I'll never meet. That gives me great satisfaction.

Kathy Borrelli, PT, OMPT
As a High School senior I investigated several career options to help me make the decision on "what I should do when I grow up." Physical Therapy was appealing because it would allow me to help others improve their life. I have been a physical therapist for 26 years and have never regretted my decision. In Physical Therapy you are always growing and learning as you work with different people and different problems. I am inspired by patient's that are able to battle back from terrible problems and always have a smile on their face. I many times receive as much from the treatment as the patient! Early on I felt a calling to help others, with Physical Therapy being an answer to my prayers.

I appreciate the ability to share ideas with other therapists concerning patient treatments. We all have had different experiences in our careers, and each patient is an individual, so a technique or treatment that worked well with one person may not be the best for another. Having a good working environment where there are other colleagues to brainstorm with on how to help a patient is important to me, and I feel that I have that environment at Harris & Renshaw Physical Therapy.

Phil McKelvy, PT, DPT Physical Therapist
I had my first interaction with physical therapy as a high school student while recovering from a football injury. I liked how the therapists worked with a large variety of people and used their knowledge to help the patients get back to what their hobbies and daily activities.

I enjoy working in a clinic where I can treat a wide variety of patients from young student athletes working hard to get back to their sport to patients working to get back to their hobbies without pain or limitations. Working in a clinic with several different therapists, there is plenty of opportunity to grow and learn. I try my best to stay current in areas of research that are constantly changing such as our knowledge of pain and utilize other therapists with different experiences than me to give my patients the best possible care.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Meredith and spoiling our dog, Aspen. I enjoy hiking, golf, disc golf, camping, traveling, and pretty much anything outdoors.
Sara Ellar, PT, DPT
My dad was a physician and my mom was a nurse, so I was surrounded with a medical influence and love for science growing up. As a runner and soccer player in high school, I took part in physical therapy to rehabilitate some of my sports related injuries. I was fascinated by my therapist and his immense knowledge of the anatomy of the human body, his intentionality with developing rapport with me and his other patients, and his commitment to helping me heal in order to return back to sports. My experience as a patient sparked an interest and desire to pursue physical therapy as a career.

Lindsey Chance, MS, OTR/L
When choosing my field of study in college, I knew I wanted to be involved in the medical rehabilitation environment. I selected the profession of occupational therapy because of its focus on renewing an individual's ability to participate in everyday activities. As an occupational therapist I am able to engage in a client's values and interest and structure my treatment plan according to what is important to the client. I have had the opportunity to work and study in several different environments such as acute rehabilitation and long term care and now in a private practice. I am excited to continue my practice of occupational therapy with those individuals looking to maximize their participation in everyday activities that they find meaningful.

Amanda Depresit, MS, OTR/L
I first learned about occupational therapy in high school during a job shadowing experience. I observed the OT doing hand therapy and something sparked inside of me and I started doing more and more research about the career. I learned that there are many different avenues of what an occupational therapist does each and every day-all of which focus on the client's ability to do the things in life that are the most important to them. I enjoy being able to assist my patients in regaining the function they need in order to do everything they need and want to do. I have had the privilege to work with a wide variety of clients both within an inpatient acute rehabilitation setting and now currently in a private practice outpatient setting. I am blessed to be able to perform the current hand therapy at Harris and Renshaw that intrigued me so many years ago. I have a great deal of experience in treating neurological patients, which I have gained through my experience in acute rehab. I have also had the opportunity to be a clinical instructor to many occupational therapy students and have enjoyed teaching and learning more about occupational therapy through the years.

Kelsy Patterson, ATC
I initially became interested sports rehabilitation after several sports-related injuries during high school. This led to pursuing the athletic training field in college with plans to go on for a doctor of physical therapy after obtaining my undergraduate degree. After working in the field as an athletic trainer, I discovered that I was truly passionate about getting to know and form lasting relationships with the athletes and getting to be “in the action” on a daily basis. After exploring my options, I knew that I belonged in a high school athletic trainer setting where I could influence students not only as athletes, but also as they matured into young adults.
