Amanda Lasseter P.T., DPT, COMT
Amanda has practiced physical therapy since 2008, receiving her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN where she was born and raised. She has treated primarily in orthopedic setting until after the birth of her son, when she became part of a vibrant new-mom community at Babymoon Inn and saw the great need for pelvic rehabilitation.
During this time, Amanda interacted with many women who did not realize that numerous issues before, during, and after pregnancy such as incontinence and pelvic pain are not only not normal, but that they are also very treatable by physical therapists. However, there were few options for physical therapists in the area specializing in pelvic rehab, so she starting courses to be able to provide care for these women in an underserved part of the Valley.
Amanda fell in love with Babymoon Inn during her pregnancy. The compassionate care of the midwives, the warm and soothing environment, and the encouragement from everyone on staff helped every step of the way even through the early weeks after her son was born in the “brown room.” Beyond the medical care, the Babymoon community is second to none and Amanda, her husband, and her son have made lifelong friends. Amanda feels that providing physical therapy in the Cottage is the ideal environment to care for women during and after their precious pregnancy experience.
Outside of work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband, Andy, 2-year-old son, Noah, and dog, Pinto, outdoors as much as possible including hiking, biking, and swimming. She is an active member of her faith community at New City Church in Phoenix. She also enjoys painting, growing vegetables in her garden, and experimenting with cooking.
