Current Position:  Chief of Staff at the Center for Integration of Medicine & Innovative Technology (CIMIT,) a research consortium of 12 institutions in Boston.

When Colleen received her BS in Physical Therapy from the University of Colorado, that was just the beginning of an amazing career for this distinguished alumna. She went on to receive her MS in Physical Therapy in 1978 from Boston University, Sargent College of Allied Health, her MPA in 1988 from Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government, and her DPT in 2002 from MGH Institute of Health Professions.

Christian Jones, MSPT, CSCS - Class of '98

Current Position:  Co-owner of Fit Physical Therapy.
Christian's business specializes in outpatient orthopedics, sports medicine, and aquatic therapy, with 4 small clinics located in local recreation centers along the western suburbs of Denver (Littleton, Lakewood, Arvada, and Westminster.)   Having facilities housed within recreation centers is community centered, which helps better transition his patients to wellness programs; something that Christian values highly.  

He's been a member of the APTA since 1998, and has been a member of the Colorado Private Practice SIG since 2007.  Christian became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA in 2002.  He is an active volunteer with the 9News Health Fair, and has been a clinical instructor for the CU and Regis PT programs over the past 10 years, and is the CCCE for his clinics.  In addition, Christian is currently working on his t-DPT degree through the CU PT program.

 Robyn Gisbert, PT, DPT - Class of '94

Current Position:  Instructor, 
University of Colorado PT Program

In a Lakewood, CO skilled nursing facility, the gym is transformed to a dance floor. Robyn Gisbert, PT, DPT, lights up the lives of the residents of Bethany Healthplex by sharing her love of dance and music.

"Providing an opportunity to dance and listen to music energizes my patients, both physically and spiritually. They literally come to life, as we waltz across the room. Not only is dance physically therapeutic, it also opens channels of communication that had previously been dormant."
