Kristin Sanders, PT, MPT, PCS has been privileged to share in the journey of many children and their families as a pediatric physical therapist (PT) since 2001. Kristin earned her Masters in Physical Therapy (MPT) from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has since sought challenges in a variety of pediatric settings. Her experiences in outpatient, both hospital-based and private practice, Early Intervention, pre-schools, and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Developmental Follow-up Clinic have fueled her passion for providing excellent care in the optimal setting for each child and their family. In order to develop a greater depth of knowledge and skills in the area of pediatrics, Kristin became a Pediatric Certified Specialist (PCS) through the American Physical Therapy Association in 2007.
Kristin is a lifelong learner who continuously strives to provide evidenced based physical therapy that is both functional and fun. She integrates and combines many treatment strategies and techniques including therapeutic taping and Total Motion Release with an emphasis on caregiver education and training. Kristin is an instructor for Summit Professional Education teaching ‘Evidence-based Kinesiology Taping for Pediatric’ nationally. Kristin has extensive experience with equipment and orthotics as well as a variety of pediatric diagnoses and conditions.
Kristin relocated from North Carolina to Warrenton, Virginia in October of 2014 due to a job transfer for her very supportive husband. She actively participated in the NC Physical Therapy Association which provided many opportunities for professional development and leadership. In addition, Kristin immensely enjoyed her role as a Clinical Director for NC FUNfitness through Special Olympics for ten years. Since 2010 she has held the position of Mid-Atlantic Regional Clinical Advisor for Special Olympics FUNfitness and continues to volunteer her time for this amazing organization. Kristin is an integral part of Community-STARs (C-STARs) and continues "Making Everyday Differences" in the lives of our kiddos!
