It made me a better clinician, treating with more confidence and gave me the ability to market to my referral sources so they, in turn, know I gave the skills to treat their patients.

I felt that completing the case reflection study was extremely helpful for reviewing the literature and course materials in practical application and for fortifying my understanding of the knowledge. The CAPP has been helpful in promoting my abilities and expertise in this treatment area, just just to other other multi-disciplinary professionals but also to the public. I don’t feel that way about all certifications, but I do about this. It also helps that the title makes sense to all who read it.

Completion of the CAPP provided me with an additional stimulus to research various topics and further develop my knowledge base as a specialized professional. I also believe the CAPP serves as a respectable symbol of my professional development efforts to my employer, my referral sources, and my patients.

I think the most beneficial component of the CAPP program is its commitment to exclusively train Physical Therapists and in a consistent manner that is evidenced-based. I absolutely feel as though it has aided in my career. I also feel as though the students, interns, and colleagues I have met who have trained through the Academy, including obtaining the CAPP, stand out professionally from colleagues who have received training elsewhere.

Many of us wear multiple hats, including physical therapist, mom/dad, spouse, friend, community volunteer. Time is precious. How can you possibly give one more thing? I remember getting an elections email and on that day thinking, “Maybe it would be nice to give back.” I’ve been in practice for more 15 years. My profession has served me well on many levels—enabled a successful business, wonderful patient relationships, life-long friends and colleagues, and a way to grow and deepen my knowledge. Perhaps it was time to serve my profession by becoming a leader in the Section on Women’s Health-APTA. Since being elected to the Nominating Committee, I have been fortunate to interact with local and national leaders in our profession and newbies just like me. I have met students, seasoned PTs, and new Section members. The energy is addictive!

Years spent as a yoga instructor led Anietie to a career focused on pelvic health. “Having gone through my own trials with my own pelvic floor from miscarriages to surgery and pregnancy to birth, this region of the body continued to be a mystery even then despite all of that ‘stuff’ that I had happening down there.” As a CSM Student Scholarship Recipient, Anietie has invested heavily in education on pelvic health, started her own podcast about women’s health, self care and pelvic floor health called ‘The Masterful Art of Self-Care’ and hopes to open her own clinic dedicated to treating pelvic floor dysfunction.

Loni is a recent graduate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the recipient of the 2018 Women in PT Summit Scholarship. She’s not afraid to do a little (or a lot) of research and has made a point to use her past personal experiences to inform how she serves patients today. She’s on a mission to keep the “normal” symptoms of sexual abuse as far from the norm as possible.
