"My goal as a physical therapist is to help my patients understand their injury and how to prevent it from happening again."

Christine is a lifelong competitor, riding horses (Dressage and trails) and running. She competed throughout high school and college, and more recently has enjoyed running a half and full marathon.

Laurie Suhy

Laurie Suhy, PT

Laurie Suhy has over 20 years experience ranging from acute care and rehab hospitals, to aquatics and work hardening (maximizing a person's ability to return to work). She's focused the past several years in outpatient clinics. She earned her BS in Physical Therapy in 1991 from University of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania. She started her career in Pittsburgh, worked in California then moved to the Northwest in 1997. She's been serving patients at Peak since 2010.

"My brother was injured as a teenager and received PT at our hometown hospital. After going to several of his sessions, I started volunteering there and eventually got my first job there."

Laurie specializes in chronic back injuries, extensive soft tissue work and manual therapy. She preaches the Importance of home exercise from day one of treatment, teaching the patients to ultimately be self sufficient in their recovery.

Laurie says it's easy to love her work: "1. Our staff is amazing. Energetic, friendly and well trained. 2. Issaquah still has a small town feel. Everyone is proud of the community and many of our clients know each other. We end up seeing multiple members of the same family. 3. Peak highly regards continuing education, making sure that their therapists can provide a variety of high quality services."

Since Laurie uses several Pilates based exercises to rehab her patients, she's finalizing her Pilates certification. She'll provide one on one instruction and group exercise classes at appropriate levels for clients with injuries.

Besides continued learning, Laurie enjoys hiking, kayaking, gardening, and hanging with the kids (watching "the band'" or dance recitals) and volunteering at their schools.
