By now you’ve probably heard that Samantha Eakes, DPT, has recently left us to pursue new opportunities. But you may not have heard how cool those opportunities are: she has acquired a sweet RV and is going to be a traveling physical therapist! In fact, she recently checked in with us from the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Check out these pictures, below!
Sam had a great impact here at CT among staff, patients and students. In addition to growing her skills as a clinician, she led our sports committee, authored most of our #FitFriday social media posts, graduated from the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Leadership Academy, and participated in the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee and the Gather women’s group. Sam played volleyball for the NIU team during college, and afterwards stayed close to the team as an excellent broadcaster for NIU home games on ESPN. She coached girls volleyball and played in adult leagues. She also participated in physical therapy clinical research at NIU.
In addition to all these accomplishments, she also happens to be a wonderful singer. We all miss Sam, but we are very excited for her new adventures and can’t wait to find out where the road takes her!
