For Immediate Release: 7/22/2019
Wilsonville, Ore. – Jessica “Kele” Murdin, Clinical Knowledge Broker at Infinity Rehab, was named Washington State’s Physical Therapist of the Year by the state’s chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association.
One of the requirements of earning this honorable award is active participation in the association.
Murdin has extensive volunteer work with her state chapter, the Physical Therapy Association of Washington, where she has been a member for about 17 years. She is part of the State Legislative Committee for her chapter and a federal affairs liaison, where she advocates for physical therapy issues. She attends board meetings to represent her field of geriatric physical therapy.
Murdin has also organized several courses, including her most recent work with the Otago Exercise Program, trainings for caregivers to continue physical therapy exercises with those they care for.
“I show up. I’m involved. I’m engaged and passionate,” she said. “I really do think our profession has so much to offer.” Murdin feels honored and humbled to be named Physical Therapist of the Year in Washington State. “It really validates the work I’ve done in geriatrics for so long,” she said.
This award is an honor not only for Murdin, but for the entire field of geriatric physical therapy. According to Murdin, the geriatrics area is a less represented area in the physical therapy world.
“I’m involved in many different areas all because I believe the geriatric field needs more voice,” she said.
Infinity Rehab is proud to congratulate Kele Murdin on her outstanding recognition.
