Carla Mitchell

Physical Therapist Assistant

I grew up in Old Forge PA where I graduated in 2008. Over the years I attended various colleges, worked many odd jobs and enjoyed working in and travelling to beautiful places. In 2019, I decided to return to school to become a Physical Therapist Assistant and graduated from Lackawanna College in 2022.

Core Values

I believe that everyone has the power and ability to make a change, no matter how big or small. And I believe that anything in life is attainable with hard work and dedication.

“Slow is steady, and steady is fast!”

I’m a physical therapist assistant, and I especially enjoy working with older adults. It’s incredibly rewarding to see them regain their independence through physical therapy. One common challenge I see is that many people in pain believe movement will worsen their condition. However, I’m passionate about empowering them to understand that “movement is medicine” and plays a crucial role in healing. Beyond that, the supportive and fun team environment here at BD makes coming to work a joy!
