Dr. Edwards is a physical therapist, author, and educator helping healthcare professionals widen the lens on treating and caring for endurance athletes. Endurance athletes and those who care for them often believe that the definition of success depends on physical performance of their bodies and how well they do at a race. Through 11 years of successfully treating thousands of frustrated athletes while navigating her own injuries and health struggles, she believes that an athlete's success is so much more than their body or their sport. She believes that connecting with the whole athlete requires the tools, knowledge, clarity, and confidence to grasp the complexities and depth of what these people need to perform and be well within and outside of their sports. Dr. Edwards graduated from Emory University with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2009 and received her Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Certification in 2011. She is the owner of Precision Performance & Physical Therapy in Atlanta, GA. She is adjunct faculty in the Department of Physical Therapy at Emory University. Additionally, she is the author of Racing Heart: A Runner's Journey of Love, Loss, and Perseverance and co-author of Go Ahead, Stop and Pee: Running During Pregnancy and Postpartum. She believes that without the humanities healthcare providers cannot reach their full potential in caring for and treating their patients.
