Member Spotlight: Sharyn Frederick, PTA


Sharyn Frederick, PTA, works full-time at UPMC Rehabilitation Institute and Freddie Fu Sports Medicine in the warm-water therapy pool and on land treating orthopaedic and neuro patients on a large team of rehabilitation specialists. She has worked for eight years in outpatient aquatic therapy & plans to spend the rest of her career in aquatics.

Warm-water aquatics is her favorite because it can be tailored to meet the needs of most patients, allowing them to heal in an environment that is both soothing and therapeutic.

She joined the Academy because she is passionate about all things Aquatic and hopes to further her education. The latest research in aquatics contributes to the advancement of her practice and the promotion of aquatics with her patients, which she feels makes her membership incredibly valuable. Because she has met the smartest group of hard-working therapists who have become a valuable asset to her career, she highly encourages other therapists to volunteer with the Academy.

When she's not in the pool, Sharyn enjoys home improvement, gardening, electric bass guitar, aquatic exercise, and bicycling.
