Dr. Anna Stromquist, PT, DPT

Doctor Of Physical Therapy       

After ten years of experience in the industry, Anna decided to open Magnolia Physical Therapy & Wellness. Magnolia is dream-turned-reality to provide people with a positive experience from the first phone-call to the very last visit. Anna graduated with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from Emory University in 2009.  Emory University's DPT program is recognized as the top physical therapy program in Georgia, and the fifth best program in the nation.  Her love of education means she is constantly seeking new experiences and resources to enhance her skills and knowledge in order to provide the very best care. 

Anna earned a bachelors degree in Spanish and Psychology from the top ranking Grinnell College in 2001 where she participated in cross-country, marathons, and triathlons. After graduating from Grinnell she spent two years studying cranio-sacral therapy, rebalancing massage, and Ayurveda. She is passionate about physical fitness, nutrition, and health and understands that we are more likely to get stronger when our approach is enjoyable and fun. She enjoys tailoring each session to her patient's preferences, combining traditional PT practices with manual therapies, dance, yoga, and barré.

When she is not practicing physical therapy, Anna enjoys spending time with her amazing husband, beautiful children, and loyal pug.
