Rebekah Ley, PT, DPT, OCS joined Athena Women’s Health (now EvergreenHealth Urology & Urogynecology Care) in June 2013. Rebekah has been a physical therapist since 2005 after receiving her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Andrews University in Michigan. A native to the Pacific Northwest, she returned to her home state and spent her clinical years in outpatient orthopedics.
<strong>Pelvic Rehabilitation Expertise</strong>
Since her graduation, she has completed a three part series in North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy and then moved on to complete boards for Orthopedic Certified Specialist. Shortly after, she completed a three part series, along with other related courses, with the Herman & Wallace Institute for her training in Women’s Health/Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Rebekah is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and its Sections on Women’s Health and Orthopedics. She has a clinical interest in pelvic pain, adolescents with pelvic disorder and a special interest in treating dancers, skaters and gymnasts.
In her previous clinical setting, Rebekah found her passion in pelvic floor/Women’s Health while running three specialties programs – TMJ, Vestibular and Women’s Health programs. Women’s Health was the most gratifying because of its sensitive nature and how wonderful it was to offer solutions to issues most women are embarrassed to talk about and/or do not know there can be help. Making her patients feel at ease, safe and comfortable with their pelvic floor issues has been the highlight of her career.
Rebekah taught English in Moscow, Russia during her college career and interned as a physical therapist in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her blended passion for culture, language and teaching motivated her to write a college level Anatomy and Physiology course which she teaches in her “spare time.” Her passion for teaching filters into the clinical setting where she enjoys educating and enabling her patients to be proactive about their condition.
Initially, Rebekah’s proclivity to health care rose from her experiences since infancy while receiving care from Children’s Hospital and the University of Washington, as she has dealt with Cystic Fibrosis from birth and later, related diabetes since the age of twenty-three. Her own issues with pelvic floor disorder, stemming from her condition, provided the foundation to developing a certain compassion for this sort of dysfunction, specifically in the adolescent population, where her own personal experiences resonate. She is thrilled to be in a practice of caring and compassionate clinicians and providers that enable a safe and feminine environment for women to receive their care.
Rebekah has been a marathon runner since 2003 and uses her races to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Aside from running, she has found her “movement passions” in dance and ice skating. When she is not in perpetual motion, she enjoys piano and the continuing her language proficiency in Russian.
