Physical Therapy


Steve S., PT

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.

Jake S., PT 

Hi! My name is Jake. I grew up in Chicago and went to school at the University of Iowa. After that, I returned to Chicago for PT school at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have worked with a variety of pediatric patients over the years and love making the sessions fun for everyone! In my free time, I enjoy hiking, playing basketball and beach volleyball.

Justine B., PT

I have spent my entire life living in the Pacific Northwest and am so excited to be living in Arizona, where I can enjoy the sunshine all year round! I received both my undergraduate degree and Doctor of Physical Therapy from George Fox University in Newberg, OR. I was a collegiate basketball player and track athlete there as well. I spent the last year working as a traveling physical therapist. Through these job assignments, as well as sports, school, and service trips, I quickly realized my greatest passion was working with kids. I especially love using a child’s own creativity to help craft fun activities for them to increase their independence and achieve their goals. I am a total animal lover and enjoy spending time with my wiener dogs and family, as well as going hiking, skiing, and boating. I am ecstatic to be a part of the Wheels on the Bus family!
