Jennifer Penrose was hooked on the healing benefits of physical therapy after suffering an injury as a teenager.  Penrose earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and has been working in the community as a physical therapist since 2001. In 2007, she opened Penrose & Associates Physical Therapy and has been treating Thurston County patients ever since.

“What I hear from my patients is that the reason we’re different from other physical therapy clinics is the amount of customized, one-on-one time we spend with our patients and what a team we are,” says Penrose.
