Megan Smith is a board-certified physical therapist at Mid-Columbia Medical Center.

Her practice focus is physical therapy. Megan loves helping patients become stronger and more independent. Her patients work hard to transition from using wheelchair to walking, or sitting upright with assistance to standing unassisted. She feels honored to guide her patients through that process.

Megan completed her undergraduate training at the University of Washington, where she graduated with honors and was awarded the English Department’s Best Honors Thesis. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania and graduated with distinction. While training for her DPT, Megan was also awarded the Eugene Michaels Critical Inquiry Award by school faculty.

She began her career as a physical therapist at Northwest Hospital in Seattle where she worked in diverse patient care settings, including acute hospital and outpatient care.

Seeking to escape big city life, Megan relocated to the Gorge from Seattle. In her free time, she enjoys taking advantage of all the recreational opportunities in the Gorge, including hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. She also loves reading and is an avid cook.

Megan is a member of the Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapists, Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapists, American Physical Therapy Association, Physical Therapy Association of Washington State, Oregon Physical Therapy Association, and a member of the Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy’s Committee on Knowledge Translation.
