Andria Bower, PTA

 


Andria grew up on the Olympic Peninsula, in sunny Sequim, WA. After high school she relocated to Bellingham and later graduated from the PTA program at Whatcom Community College.

Andria says " Being an athlete all my life, I was introduced to physical therapy during my second year of high school due to a track injury. I absolutely fell in love with the way the body moved and how everything was connected. Since then, I've made that love a reality."

In addition to her job as a physical therapist assistant, Andria is a photographer who dabbles in portraits, weddings and adventure photography. She uses her weekends to explore different parts of the great Pacific Northwest, documenting her adventures with her photos.

Josh Eastlund, PTA

 

Josh grew up all over the U.S. (Navy family), but landed in the Pacific Northwest after college, which has been home ever since. He has played many sports over the years--tennis, soccer, cross country, basketball--and dealt with the numerous resulting injuries, which is how he found out about the benefits of PT. His own experience rehabbing from work injuries sustained as a former stonemason and carpenter also gives him a unique understanding of what his clients are going through. He likes using manual therapy and tailored exercise programs to help people regain the function to do what they love, whether it's high-level activity or simply getting around without pain.

Josh enjoys mountain biking, hiking in the Cacades, and managing a 7 acre homestead in north Bellingham with his wife and dogs, where they raise heritage pigs and chickens.
