Extracurricular Interests/Hobbies:
Scott was born and raised here in Western Washington. He was very active as a child, spending countless hours participating in a number of sports before deciding on soccer as his favorite. He played nearly year-round through High School, being lucky enough to play on three select teams that won State Championships and went to Regionals. He then went on to play for the Men’s Soccer team at Western Washington University for two years. He received his BS in Exercise Science degree and his Athletic Training Certification from WWU in 2001.

It was also at Western that Scott met his beautiful wife Alison, and the two have been married for more than ten years. Deciding that they wanted to see another part of the country while still “young” Scott applied to graduate school programs across the country and they eventually decided on the University of Rhode Island. He received his Master of Science in Physical Therapy degree from URI in 2005. Being away from family and friends for three years was enough and the Richards returned to Washington only two months after graduation.

Scott came to work for Kitsap Physical Therapy right away, and was originally located in our Silverdale office. He spent his first four years in that office before taking over as the Clinic Director in the Bremerton office where he remains today. He has always been interested in sports specific rehab programs and has taken classes on Golf Rehab. In 2011 Scott was awarded the distinction of Sports Certified Specialist by the APTA. He is currently the only SCS in Kitsap County and one of less than twenty in the state. Scott is also now working towards becoming a Certified Hand Therapist that would allow him to treat variety of arm, wrist and hand problems.

Alison and Scott also now have two wonderful children: Hannah and Zachary. Scott continues to have a love of anything sports, both as a participant and a spectator. His first purchase after joining Kitsap PT in 2005 was season tickets for the Seattle Seahawks, and he still goes to all home games with his father and with Rich McDowell of the Kingston office. Scott also enjoys spending time on the golf course and someday hopes to have a handicap of five or below. He also enjoys being outdoors and active, with family activates like camping and hiking. The Richards look forward to spending the next 15 years being chauffeurs for their kids for a combination of team sports, karate, ballet, drama or whatever other activities the kids decide to participate in.

Extracurricular Interests/Hobbies:

Shannon is a Bremerton native who graduated from Olympic High School in 2007. She was a part of the athletic training program which helped solidify her passion of being in the medical field. In high school, Shannon was a multisport athlete, playing on both the varsity women’s soccer and basketball teams, as well as playing on a year-round premiere soccer team for West Sound FC. She stayed local and graduated from Saint Martin’s University in 2011 with her Bachelors of Science. At Saint Martin’s University, Shannon was a key member of the Women’s Soccer Team and made the All-Academic Team 3 years in a row. She graduated with Tri-Beta honors for her outstanding GPA in all science classes.

After graduating from undergraduate school, Shannon joined the KPT family in 2011 at the Bremerton location as a PT technician. In her two years as a technician, Shannon gained experience and knowledge that she was able to apply once she began PT school. Shannon attended graduate school for physical therapy at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. While still in PT school, Shannon became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist which has supported her ability to help patients get back to their prior level of function. She graduated in 2016 and returned to KPT at our Bremerton location in August 2016. She states it was like she never left!

In the first year of being a new grad physical therapist, Shannon expanded her knowledge and earned the title of Certified Lymphedema Therapist after attending a week and a half long intensive continuing education course. The lymphedema specialty is now a thriving program that is not offered at many other locations in Bremerton. She also specializes in Oncology Management and is certified in Strength After Breast Cancer as well as LSVT, a specialized treatment for people with Parkinson’s Disease. She is hoping to become board certified in both Orthopedics and Sports within the next few years, as both specialties are of significant interest to her.

On a personal note, Shannon’s main priority is her family and being a new mom to her young daughter, Nyla. You can often find her hiking, exercising, golfing, reading a book or lounging with her family. From boating and kayaking in the summer to snowboarding in the winter, she enjoys all four seasons that the PNW offers and takes advantage of our beautiful state year-round. Please feel free to say hello if you see her out and about!

Extracurricular Interests/Hobbies:

Sharon received her Master in Physical Therapy degree from University of Puget Sound in 2001. She joined Kitsap Physical Therapy and Sports Clinics in January 2002 to develop her interest in orthopedic and aquatic physical therapy. In addition to conducting her clinic’s aquatic therapy program, Sharon is a certified practitioner of the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment. She greatly enjoys the interplay of land-based and aquatic elements of rehabilitating a wide variety of injuries and chronic conditions. Sharon appreciates that the McKenzie approach empowers patients by providing the information and strategies they need to understand and correct their musculoskeletal problem and then to prevent future injury. And she loves the way the pool returns the freedom and joy of movement to people whose conditions limit physical activity on land.

Sharon spent her most of her childhood in Colorado, Massachusetts, and Europe. She first moved to the Puget Sound region to attend University of Washington. She enjoyed studying in Germany in the process of earning a BA in International Studies. After graduation, experiences working at a ski resort in Alaska and then bicycle touring across Canada and down the West Coast renewed her earlier interest in physical therapy.

Sharon’s personal interests now center around family activities with her energetic, nature-loving young daughter. Her spare time is often spent on the beach or in the woods, riding her bicycle or paddling the kayak. She enjoys living on the border of Point Defiance Park, but finds it well worth her commute to Bremerton for the benefits of a lovely pool, the camaraderie of caring and fun coworkers, and the opportunity to treat an interesting and rewarding community.

Greg became introduced to the idea of physical therapy as a possible profession after being treated by a PT for a back and neck injury. Greg saw that as a PT, he could help others recover from injury by teaching the tools to manage their injury in the same way that he had. He went on to attend the physical therapy program at Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York, where he earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2012. His professional focus has been treatment of orthopedic injuries. He currently is living in Manette with his wife and their 3 children.

Extracurricular Interests/Hobbies:

Cheryl has life-long ties to Kitsap County. She grew up here, graduating from South Kitsap High School and originally went to college earning a certificate in Interior Design.

While they were still young she made a well-timed decision to go back to college for PT.

When she graduated in 2003, she immediately joined the KPT family and has enjoyed treating, encouraging and educating a wide variety of patients ever since! While she stays current on taking the latest continuing education courses in outpatient orthopedic rehab, she has a special interest in working with the Geriatric population. For the past 5 years, she has taken courses on Geriatric rehab, Balance and Fall Prevention and she recently earned her Advanced Senior Fitness Instructor Certification. Cheryl now runs a 1-hour Senior Fitness class two days a week and says, “There is some crazy laughter and serious sweat that fills that hour!”

Due to her dedication and diversity of experience in the field, she has been awarded the Recognition of Advanced Proficiency by the American Physical Therapy Association. On a personal note, Cheryl’s main priority is her family. In addition to her 2 beautiful daughters, she remarried her high school sweetheart, Jacques, in 2008 and gained a step-daughter and step-son. You can find her taking long Harley rides with her husband, enjoying Broadway plays in Seattle, wine tasting with friends, camping, reading inspirational books and most definitely – you can always find her laughing out loud without hesitation!
