Gillian Diestel, SPT
Gillian is a Doctor of Physical Therapy student who recently joined the team and has been learning and practicing at both the Thomas Johnson and Spring Ridge clinics. She is currently attending South College, located in Knoxville, TN, and will receive her DPT in June. After graduation, Gillian plans to complete a year long residency through Evidence in Motion along with Dr. Earl Cox as her mentor in order to obtain her Orthopedic Certified Specialty. Gillian is passionate about patient care and believes that great therapy starts with a good patient-therapist relationship in order to build a foundation of trust and respect.
Outside of the clinic, Gillian can be found hiking, swimming, or lounging around the house watching Penn State football with her fiance, Chris, and their dog, Julio. When she isn’t studying or traveling back home to Pennsylvania to spend time with her friends and family, Gillian also enjoys exploring downtown Frederick and trying out all of the great food and new places that Frederick has to offer.”
