Maddie TightMaddie Tight

Maddie has been passionate about the science of movement since a young age. She grew up playing every sport offered but fell in love with soccer and ended up playing for Colby College, in Maine. While there she studied psychology, but early into her college career she realized she wanted to help others get outside and back to their favorite activities after an injury or life-altering procedure or diagnosis. For that reason she started taking the prerequisites for physical therapy graduate school and eventually found herself in Missoula, attending UM's doctorate program for physical therapy.

Maddie spent the previous two years in Tahoe, California, working as a physical therapy aide, assisting physical therapists with exercises and pursed her other passions of skiing and trail running. She loves getting people of all ages and fitness levels to their preferred level of performance and moving efficiently to avoid injury. Maddie specializes in endurance and stabilization programs as well as high-intensity interval workouts but is happy to try anything that will best serve the client.
