Julie Egleston, PT

Physical Therapist

Julie graduated from the University of Maryland at Baltimore Physical Therapy School in 1990. She has close to 30 years of experience with almost half that time working with Pediatric clients in the home, in an outpatient setting, in aquatic therapy, hippotherapy, and in the school system. ⠀
"My favorite thing about being a therapist is helping people achieve their goals and live a happy and productive life! ⠀

Outside of work, I am wife to my husband of almost 22 years, and a mom to 17-year-old boy/girl twins. When I'm not working you can find me spending time with my family, working out on my Peloton bike (I love my Peloton bike), taking my dog for long walks/hikes, and scoping out today's latest fashion trends."

Occupational Therapist

Abigail graduated from Towson University in 2019 with a Masters in Occupational Therapy. As a student, she interned in an outpatient orthopedic facility here in Maryland and at a school for kids with special needs in a rural, developing town in Guatemala where she provided both school-based and outpatient therapy services to children in the community.

Both experiences provided experience working with a wide variety of clients, developing Abigail into an observant, independent, and flexible therapist. She is passionate and excited about the diverse and holistic therapies offered at Unbridled.

Abigail enjoys to read, cook, run, hike, swim, and travel, and loves to teach and engage other people in these activities. She strives to live fully and wants to help others do the same.
