Hi! I’m Tonya. I’m a Physical Therapist, human and equine functional anatomy expert, business owner, and horsewoman. I have a passion for horses, and in my younger years, the barn became a haven to escape the pressures of the outside world.
A path to becoming a veterinarian to work with horses evolved into a desire to connect human movement to people’s relationships with their horses. I ultimately chose physical therapy to help riders see themselves as athletes and show them how to be the best athletes for their horses.
I live in St. Petersburg, Florida, where I own and run Centaur Physical Therapy.
