Dawn McClellan, MSPT, is our owner. Dawn started as a PTA in 1992 and continued to attend graduate school on the weekends while raising three sons. Dawn graduated with her Masters in Physical Therapy in 1999 and attends continuing education courses regularly to stay on the cutting edge. In 2005, Dawn discovered the wonderful benefits of Pilates and became a Certified Instructor. Having worked as a staff therapist and as a clinic director at numerous outpatient therapy clinics in the region, Dawn became frustrated with the narrow focus on standard treatments and shortchanging of patients by multiple patient visits per hour.
Dawn created Evolution as an alternative to traditional physical therapy. Taking a more holistic approach to treatment and wellness, and combining that with one-on-one care will deliver better and longer-lasting results.
