Since 2016, Nancy has been greeting patients with her smile at the Canton and Livonia locations. She has loved meeting new people and it makes her so happy to watch patients improve. “Graduation Day” is her favorite. While it brings her joy to see patients well enough to discharge, she misses them walking through our doors.
Nancy and her husband reside in Livonia with their two daughters, where they have lived for 30 years. When Nancy’s not working, you can find her spending time with her family. Summer is her favorite season, so you can often spot her floating in their pool or gardening. Nancy and her husband love to travel, with some of their favorite spots being Las Vegas and Arizona, where they hope to retire.
Jessica has been with Ally Physical Therapy since 2016. When she’s not at work, you can find her with her family. She is happily married with two young children (who are her pride and joy) and two big dogs! She also enjoys Target runs, traveling somewhere warm, and being outside on a summer or fall day.
