Heather Smith MPT, MTC – Owner

Heather was raised in Cumberland Gap Tennessee and graduated from Powell Valley High School in 1995. She went on to earn an Associate’s of Science Degree from Walter State Community College in 1998, then went on to study environmental and occupational health at East Tennessee State University until moving to Memphis Tennessee to pursue her dreams to be a Physical Therapist. Heather graduated with a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis Tennessee in 2003.

She obtained a position as a lead physical therapist at Claiborne County Hospital and Nursing Home in Harrogate Tennessee for 4 years before moving to Florida in the fall of 2007. While working as a lead therapist, she completed her Manual Therapy Certification from The University of St. Augustine in 2007, which allowed her to improve her manual skills as a therapist and open additional doors for continuing education. This certification is held by a little over 2,500 other physical therapist in the nation and is very helpful to her orthopedic practice as a PT.

Heather has been the owner of Body Owners Physical Therapy since June 2008. She has helped build Body Owners to a very reputable physical therapy practice in Key West Florida with her excitement toward the evolution of physical therapy and individualized approach with treating patients.

She returned to WVU in 2005 and graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2008.
