Talitha Rector, PT, DPT
Doctor of Physical Therapy, Emory University
Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, Elon University
Talitha’s middle school dream of becoming a PT came true in 2007 when she graduated from Emory University with her physical therapy doctorate. She began her career at Kennedy Krieger’s International Center for Spinal Cord Injury but transitioned to pediatrics in 2012. She has worked in a variety of pediatric settings, including the school systems, outpatient clinics, and early intervention. Talitha has received continuing education training in functional movements, reflex integration, kinesiotaping, Integrated Listening Systems (iLS), social-emotional development and has worked with children with a variety of diagnoses, including autism, musculoskeletal pain, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, prematurity, torticollis, global developmental delays, and genetic disorders. Talitha values the importance of patient/parent education and believes it is her job to assist in integrating therapy into the daily lives of her patients because sometimes the smallest changes make the biggest difference. In her spare time, Talitha enjoys quilting, cycling, and walking her dog, Louie.
