Meet Rebecca Reisch, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, JWHPT Associate Editor

Introducing the people behind #JWHPT. Meet Rebecca Reisch, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, one of our esteemed associate editors for the Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy (Based in Portland, OR). 

WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND?

I have been a women’s health therapist for 19 years. Currently I am a professor at Pacific University in Oregon where I teach content related to evidence-based practice and women’s health/pelvic floor physical therapy, and I practice part-time in our on-site clinic. I have been an Associate Editor for the Journal for three years.

WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO VOLUNTEER WITH JWHPT?

I had been involved in other Academy activities in the past, and I was anxious to contribute again. I really enjoy reading and editing, so the journal is a good fit; I also wanted to contribute to long-term expansion of our evidence base in this specialty area.

HOW ARE YOU ADAPTING DURING THIS GLOBAL HEALTH CRISIS?

​I’m on sabbatical from my academic position right now. Being on sabbatical during the pandemic is both good and bad; my daily life has not been as impacted as those who are still trying to work full time or who are out of work, but I am not doing some of the things I had planned for my free time. Overall, I’m getting through just fine.
