Margaret Acton

Miami-Marquette Challenge Representative

I am from Elmhurst, Illinois and majored in Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. I fell in love with Pitt during my undergraduate studies and and am thrilled to be continuing my studies as a student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. I played volleyball for Pitt throughout my undergraduate years, which sparked my interest in physical therapy due to injuries I experienced and the physical therapy and rehabilitation I went through afterwards. I cannot wait to gain more experience working with athletes, as well as explore the variety of other physical therapy settings and continue helping people and having a positive impact on their lives. Outside of school I still love to play volleyball, run, read, hike, see live music, and explore new cities.
