Originally from Pocatello, Idaho, Alyssa Hemuli attended Weber State University for athletic training, where she also ran the 800 meter in Track and Field. Several injuries throughout high school and college required her to get assistance from physical therapists and athletic trainers. She married a Weber State University football player who also dealt with injuries. Alyssa eventually found a passion in studying movement of the body and different healing processes, and decided to become a physical therapy assistant.
Some of Alyssa’s clinical interests are neurological rehabilitation, geriatric rehabilitation, sports rehabilitation, and orthopedic injuries. In her free time, she enjoys playing with and spending time with her two young daughters. She and her husband have started several small businesses together to keep them busy in their spare time. She loves to travel and has been lucky enough to do so with dance teams, study abroad groups, and family.
