Mary Beth has been a physical therapist for 22 years. She graduated from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in 1994 and spent the first few years of her career traveling the United States providing relief staff for therapy clinics in need. In 1998 she settled In Randolph County, and has provided therapy services in a variety of settings throughout the area, including outpatient orthopedics, skilled nursing and home care.
Mary Beth spent 3 years as an orthopedic service line manager where she worked directly with orthopedic surgeons on protocols that involved every piece of the orthopedic experience. This included the operating room, physician offices, rehabilitation and the emergency department. After spending time in many clinics Mary Beth decided that the people of Randolph County deserved a different type of therapy experience.
“I’ve been a patient several times in my life. I know how important it is to be comfortable with your therapist and with your therapy environment. I wanted to be able to show patients that therapy can be enjoyable and fun. I am dedicated to providing an atmosphere that allows every patient to leave our clinic feeling better than they did when they walked in”.
In her spare time Mary Beth enjoys spending time with her fiancé, her friends, and her family in both Ohio and North Carolina. She enjoys traveling, reading and hanging with her two furry children, River and Ryder.
Ashley has been a physical therapist assistant for 10 years. She graduated from the PTA program at Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, NC in 2006. She has provided therapy services in multiple settings, including inpatient acute care, outpatient orthopedics, home health, and independent living facilities. Ashley joined Pro-PT in 2015 and was excited to be back in the outpatient setting, which is her favorite because of the wide range of diagnosis and ages she gets to treat.
In her spare time, Ashley loves to spend time with her family and friends. She is married to her high school sweetheart, Eric, and together they have two children, Jaycie and Davis. She enjoys music, dancing, crafting and spending time at the beach!
Ashley began her journey as a Physical Therapist Assistant in January of 2017. She graduated from the PTA program at South University of High Point in December of 2016.

“I have always had a passion for taking care of a helping people. My dream was to have a job doing that very thing in hopes of making a difference in someone’s life. Now that I have that job and I have found that people are making a difference in ME. I have attended therapy sessions with family and have been a patient myself so I understand the importance of being comfortable and making therapy fun!”
In her spare time she enjoys: hiking, camping, fishing, beekeeping with her husband Daniel and playing with her beloved Doberman Dozer!
River is our 5 year old miniature Goldendoodle. She weighs in at a whopping 25 pounds and she is completely hypoallergenic, which allows her to receive love from every patient that arrives in the clinic. Her main job is “greeter,” however, she has been known to get a little lazy and expect everyone who walks in the door to come and greet her with a belly rub. River has been trained to watch all patients to make sure they don’t cheat on their exercises, but we find that sometimes she gets a little lazy with this too!
Ryder was born on December 13, 2015 and he was adopted by Mary Beth and her fiancé Trip on February 7, 2016. He is a Micro-Goldendoodle and is completely hypoallergenic. Ryder started part-time employment in July 2016 and he has been eager to follow in his sister's foot-steps greeting every patient that walks in the door with happiness!! Ryder loves his job at Pro-PT and he is known to raise the energy level of the clinic with his fun-loving personality.
