Physical Therapy

Shelby B., PT

Hi my name is Shelby Bartusek and I am excited to be working for Wheels on the Bus Pediatric Therapy. I am originally from Denver, CO and moved to Arizona for undergrad where I attended Grand Canyon University and majored in Exercise Science. After graduation I moved to Los Angeles for PT school where I lived for 3 years and just recently relocated back to Arizona. Over the years, my passion has become helping children maintain their best quality of life through physical therapy. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my 2 sisters and catching up with good friends.

Originally from Ohio - go Buckeyes - I have been a pediatric physical therapist for almost 15 years.  I have serviced schools, home health and reservations all over the state of Arizona.  I also have volunteered for over 10 years for the local Special Olympics.   My passion is mentoring teenagers with disabilities, and I form strong bonds with the clients I serve.   I have been with Wheels on the Bus for 8 years and look forward to many more years partnering with this company.

Steven R., PT

Hi! My name is Steven, and I am excited to be working with these lovely kiddos through Wheels on the Bus Pediatric Therapy. When I'm not working, I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my amazing wife and four wonderful kids. We enjoy all sorts of adventures, from museums, hiking, parks, to games at home. I also volunteer with the youth in my church, helping them be the best individuals they can be and to become thriving and compassionate adults.

Nikki R., PT

I am originally from Minnesota but moved to Arizona to attend ASU in order to soak up the sunshine! I then moved to Denver, CO for my doctorate and returned to Arizona shortly thereafter. I have worked with children as a babysitter and nanny growing up and have worked in several home health and clinic based pediatric settings as well as in geriatric settings which has helped me understand the importance of keeping it fun, interesting, and good listening skills. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, dancing, hot yoga, and being out on the lake! 

Emily T., PT

Hey there! My name is Emily and I am a Physical Therapist with Wheels on the Bus Pediatric Therapy. Coming from a geriatric setting, I am extremely excited to be expanding my practice to children of all ages! As a new mom, I understand the importance of watching your children grow up to live a happy and healthy lifestyle. My job is to help get children moving in whatever way works best for them and support their families in the process. When I’m not working, I enjoy running with my daughter and dogs, challenging my husband to a “friendly” game of Scrabble or Monopoly, and trying food at new restaurants.
