Peyton earned her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Kennesaw State University in 2018. She went on to earn her Associate of Applied Science in Physical Therapist Assistant from Lanier Technical College, where she graduated with high honors in 2022.
Prior to college, Peyton was an active basketball player who grew up playing in competitive AAU travel leagues and high school. She received a women’s basketball scholarship at the University of West Florida in 2013 but had to medically withdraw due to illness. During her basketball career, Peyton faced various injuries that landed her in physical therapy many times. As a recurring patient, she not only experienced her own physical therapy success, but she also witnessed the successful journey of many other patients ranging in age and injuries; this is what ultimately bred her love for the profession.
Peyton worked as a technician at Team Rehab in East Cobb for 3 ½ years before attending physical therapist assistant school and is now eager to return as a clinician. Her clinical interests include orthopedics, injury prevention, manual therapy, fall prevention/balance, and health & wellness. She enjoys working with a variety of patients with conditions such as musculoskeletal injuries/post-op repairs, vestibular disorders, and Parkinson’s disease. Peyton’s top priority is to help her patients minimize their functional limitations and safely return to the activities they love doing.
Outside of physical therapy, Peyton enjoys cycling, binge watching The Office or Friends, spending time with her family and friends, attending concerts and music festivals, spoiling her dog – Sony, and cheering for the Georgia Bulldogs. GO DAWGS!
