Gabrielle Olcott, SPT | Candidate for SSIG Director (2021-2022)

Based in Monroe Township, New Jersey.

My personal vision is to bring more awareness to pelvic heath in physical therapy practice. Pelvic health is often overlooked or just unknown by many clinicians, yet pelvic health can contribute to musculoskeletal issues elsewhere in the body. I want to promote pelvic health not just to patients but to other clinicians as well as student physical therapists.

As a leader of my undergraduate school’s Kinesiology Club and Cheerleading Club, I’ve conducted meetings, organized, promoted and held events, worked with organizations in the community and many other leadership duties. Serving others is a passion of mine and it would be an honor to use my skills to serve the Pelvic Health SSIG as a director.

As a Pelvic Health SSIG Director, my efforts will be to promote more student involvement in the SSIG and create a community platform for students interested in pelvic health. My goal is to provide resources to students who may be interested in pursuing a career in pelvic health as well as be a liaison for ways students can get involved. Implementing a journal club where students can discuss relevant articles and topics in pelvic health is a great way for students to get involved and learn. I also want to foster a community/network of students interested in pelvic health by holding events where students can meet and get to know each other. I feel that the Pelvic Health SSIG is being directed towards a platform for students who share a common interest to learn, to get involved, and to form a tight knit community.

I look forward to the opportunity to be a student representative and contribute to bringing awareness and knowledge of pelvic health through a role as a Pelvic Health SSIG Director.
