Marta Padilla, PT

Marti followed her calling and graduated from Temple University’s PT school in 1983. She specialized in Neuro PT and has spent the majority of her career in this specialty working with children and the elderly. Her pediatric work included developmentally delayed children. “I’m a General Practitioner/Jack Of All Trades,” Marti says jokingly. Meaning she studies hard and is always researching and taking new courses that may help meet the needs of her patients. The most memorable experience for her was the two mission trips she took to Romania and Belarus to work with children.
