Viki is a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and has been practicing since 2020. Her clinical interests include orthopedics and sports medicine. She is also interested in earning advanced proficiencies in manual therapy, chronic pain management, fall prevention, and balance strategies.
Prior to her career as a PTA, Viki owned and operated an antique business for 10 years and was a location manager for a major retailer for 13 years. She traveled all over buying and selling antiques and was afforded the opportunity to explore a great deal of the country. Once she had the desire to settle down and establish some roots, she worked her way up from a part time seasonal employee to the location manager.
Viki wanted a more meaningful career that would have a positive impact on people’s lives. She discovered her passion when she hurt her back and discovered the right physical therapist was the difference between requiring surgery and correcting the problem with therapeutic exercise. In fact, she was the second patient at Crom Rehabilitation in their original location on Shepherd Drive in the Heights. She worked as a Physical Therapy Technician during her first year of school and returned to her Crom family when she earned her license.
Outside of work, Viki enjoys being outdoors. She walks 4 miles a day and likes to visit state and national parks when she has time. She loves to play games with her family and friends, knows her way around the kitchen, and enjoys a good bottle of wine.
