She previously served as a voting Delegate and Board Director for the American Physical Therapy Association-Oregon. King’s research interests focus on increasing the confidence and competency of licensed physical therapists when screening the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems with a secondary focus on therapeutic guidelines to implement in clinical decision-making when determining patient appropriateness across all clinical practice settings.

King received her Bachelor of Science degree at Oakwood University in Huntsville and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. She has been in clinical practice for 12 years, primarily in critical care, neuro IPR, post-acute rehab, lymphedema, and wound care settings.

She previously served as an Instructor for the Department of Physical Therapy Education Program at Western University of Health Sciences – Oregon.

A native Texan, King is looking forward to spending more time with her family and friends and enjoying southern cuisine. She enjoys connecting with God daily through her morning devotionals and nature and is very engaged with her church family.

“I am excited to join the hybrid DPT program at Baylor University, where commitment to Christianity and to the profession are unequivocally valued,” King said. “I look forward to investing in the next generation of physical therapists as they prepare for service to humanity.”
