Happy Better Hearing and Speech Month to Encore Rehabilitation Speech Language Pathologist Jessica Rea!

Jessica Rea,MA, CCC-SLP, graduated from the University of Mississippi with a B.A. in Communicative Disorders and then received her Master’s degree in Speech Pathology from the University of Memphis. She chose the field of Speech Pathology after witnessing her grandfather receive rehabilitation after a large stroke when she was in high school. She always knew she wanted to be in the healthcare profession and Speech Pathology seemed like a perfect fit! Jessica has been a Clinician with Encore Rehabilitation-Athens since 2012.

Thank you for all you do, Jessica!

Rachael Jones, DPT – Encore Rehabilitation Regional Director

Rachel Jones PT

Rachael Jones is passionate about her patients! “The best thing about being a Physical Therapist is my patients! As a Physical Therapist, I spend one-on-one time with each patient over a period of weeks and often months. I not only educate, facilitate, and assist in their healing, but I also get to know patients on a personal level. I meet their families and hear their struggles. I am honored to watch their success. I am privileged to experience the joy when they walk again, return to sports, return to work, gain their independence and when they are finally pain-free. I am thankful for my role as physical therapist and consider it a great honor.”

A native of Guin, Alabama, Rachael is the Regional Director of the Encore Rehabilitation Clinics in Fayette, Vernon, Hamilton, and Winfield. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from The University of Mississippi and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. Rachael also holds a certification in Dry Needling.  She has been a clinician for seven years and has practiced with Encore Rehabilitation for five years.

Thank you, Rachael, for all that you do for your patients and Encore Rehabilitation!
