ASHLEY VAUGHAN, LPTA GETTING TO KNOW THE THERAFIT PHYSICAL THERAPY TEAM!

Summa Cum Laude in 2017. Ashley hopes to utilize this degree to become a CSCS-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist to better serve her patients and those interested in improving their physical fitness and strength. Ashley also enjoys serving as a Clinical Instructor for Calhoun Community College’s Physical Therapist Assistant program. “It’s great to show students my day-to-day work and see them become more confident in treating patients themselves”, she says. Ashley also enjoys running 5k and 10k races. She married her husband, Nick, in 2017 and they live in Huntsville. Their most recent adventure in 2019 was a trip to India with a group from her church, Summit Crossing Community Church. The team was there from January 24 - February 3. This was Ashley’s first time overseas, but her husband’s second time to India. While in India, they worked with local pastors, nationals (local Christians), and translators to tell the Gospel to some who have never heard it before. Ashley was nervous and excited about this new endeavor and said, “Before meeting my husband this is something I would never have done, but after hearing stories from him and others who have been before I am excited to go!”
