Amber Dodd


Doctor of Physical Therapy


Amber received her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in Sport Psychology from Western Washington University followed by her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Western University of Health Sciences, outside of Los Angeles. She has always been an active individual and competed as a collegiate hurdler and 400m runner at WWU. In addition, she played select softball and soccer recreationally in high school. Amber’s first experience with physical therapy was being a patient which quickly became a passion for helping others. The first part of her career included working in hospital-based outpatient and acute care. Amber loves working with patients of all ages and has special interests in orthopedics, pain neuroscience and vestibular rehab.

As of 2022, Amber is an orthopedic manual therapy resident through Therapeutic Associates and is working towards being a Certified Manual Physical Therapist (CMPT) and Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) through the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT).

Outside of working in the clinic, Amber enjoys being active including lifting weights, running, hiking, traveling and dance hula hooping. She also enjoys spending time with her fiancé, John and puppy, Daisy.
