We are thrilled to announce that Susanne Michaud was awarded Physical Therapist of the Year for 2015 by the PTWA at their annual meeting.   Susanne’s accomplishments of recent are starting a new clinic, Stride Physio; taking and passing the board specialist certification exam in orthopedics; working with the dry needling work group and testifying in the state house & senate in defense of PTs doing this; working as the membership director on the PTWA board of directors; and teaching in the PT program at the University of Washington.  For those of us that work side by side with Susanne, we can attest that she accomplished all this with style and grace.  Although she continues to “move the needle forward’ to advance the profession, she never loses sight of her ultimate mission which is helping people reach their movement goals.
