Brittany Leafe, PT, DPT

Brittany is originally from a small rural town in northern New Hampshire, but after her first week as a student at Wind City 4 years ago she knew Wyoming was where she wanted to live. She graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in 2017. She knew that physical therapy was the field she wanted to pursue because she always wanted to help people and was driven to gain the knowledge needed through schooling to teach people about their bodies and help them achieve their goals.

Brittany is passionate about treating athletes, whether they are weekend warriors or competing on sports teams for their middle school, high school, and college. Being a previous collegiate athlete in both downhill ski racing and track and field, she enjoys helping others perform at higher levels without pain in their own sports. She spent a year working at an outpatient clinic in a small Colorado town in the mountains where she worked closely with many collegiate level teams. She especially enjoys working with runners, skiers, bikers, and rodeo athletes. One of the things that sets Brittany a part from most PTs is that she sees every patient that walks through the door as an athlete. She feels that living in Wyoming requires some level of physical fitness in turn making everyone an athlete in their own way.

When asked why she enjoys working at Wind City she credits the team environment and everyone’s enthusiasm for learning. “We all push each other to provide the best care to our patients by educating each other on what we are learning in our own continuing education.”

When not at work you can find Brittany doing anything and everything outside. Exploring & seeking new adventures in our beautiful state. She loves back-country hiking and camping, horseback riding, skiing, and hunting. She recently discovered a new sport that she has been competing in for 2 years now called skijoring. Ultimately she gets pulled behind a horse on skis going over jumps and skiing around gates. It combines her love for the western culture and her ski racing past. Talk about a Wyoming sport!
