Valerie has been practicing pediatric physical therapy since 1995.    She can be found playing with kids or reading books almost any day of the week.

Spritely PT is a blog for people who are interested in pediatric physical therapy, either as parents or as professionals.  In it I explore ideas, research, and the human movement system by creating fictional characters and scenarios to illustrate situations common in daily practice.  I hope you find some new ideas here.

The illustrations are for my mom, who recently said she wanted to see more of my art work.   I used to draw when I was little, but haven’t spent much of my life practicing.  Drawings provide great examples of movement.  I hope to improve with practice.
