October 2018: Angela Link

We are happy to highlight Angela Link, PT, DPT, NCS. Angela works for Hospital for Special Care.

What made you want to become a PT or PTA? 
Dance was a love of mine starting as toddler up until college. I think this is why fitness and movement was always up my alley. Later on I got involved in adaptive sports. It was amazing to see how many ways people can be engaged and meet their functional goals with the right setup, environment and team. It still is a lot of fun.
Why are you an APTA member? 
I know there is so much more to PT/PTAs then just the day to day clinic piece. There is governmental, research and networking aspects. The APTA allows to me to support those doing a lot of the extra work, but also allows me to be supported. The resources and opportunities we have available to us by the APTA are limitless.
Angela is a National Classifier for Wheelchair Rugby.  When not working, she is cooking up a storm in the kitchen, walking her boxer/lab adopted dog Apollo or working on her own fitness to keep up with the patients caseload!
What her colleague had to say:
In the past year, Angela has finished a neuro residency, moved from Florida to CT, become an NCS, and made a positive impact on the CT PT community. She is a main contributor in the development of a neuro SIG in CT, and does all of this in addition to being a huge asset to the outpatient neuro population that she treats full-time. Angela deserves a spotlight for all of her hard work and the positive influence she is sure to continue being in the PT community of CT.
