Emilly Munguía Marshall, SPT, born and raised in Honduras, graduated from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in August of 2012. She then left Tennessee to pursue her Doctor of Physical Therapy at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. During her time at Emory, Emilly has found a profound passion in the humanities in rehabilitation, seeing physical therapy as it touches the physical and emotional components of a patient’s life.
Emilly is thankful to her loved ones in the US and abroad, as the examples set by her family and friends have been the spark to ignite the interest in spending her career and life giving back. She hopes to pursue this goal following her graduation in May, 2017.
