Dr. Elizabeth Kilzi, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist

Qualifications: Doctorate in Physical Therapy
Born: Scranton, PA
Now lives: Newport, RI

Professional background leading to career in health and wellness: 

After a back injury side-lined me for my junior college basketball season, I spent most of that time rehabbing and learning about how the body operates. PT got me back out on the court feeling better than ever, and I knew I wanted to do the same for others!

What reasons you are passionate about helping others: 

I always knew I wanted to be in a career where I was helping and connecting with people. I love being able to give people back what injury has taken from them, while helping them maintain an active and pain-free lifestyle.

What do you enjoy in your free time:

I love doing anything active- running, yoga, fitness classes, basketball, walking the Cliff Walk and beach, and boogie boarding/surfing. I love exploring new places with friends, window shopping, and baking/cooking!
