 Hillary Cummings

Pitt-Marquette Challenge Representative

Hi all! My name is Hillary Cummings and I am originally from Pittsburgh. Prior to attending PT school at the University of Pittsburgh I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a degree in Kinesiology. I never expected that I would be afforded the opportunity to return to Pittsburgh to attend one of the best DPT programs! Before beginning the DPT program here at Pitt, I took the year to work as a rehab aide as well as earn my yoga instructor and personal trainer certifications in order to better prepare myself for my future career in physical therapy.  My special interests within the physical therapy field include outpatient orthopedics and women’s health, all of which I look forward to learning more about during my time here at the Pitt. Outside of the DPT program I enjoy taking yoga classes, spending time with friends and family, and doing anything outdoors! In my future physical therapy career I hope to combine my love for physical therapy, women’s health, yoga, and Pilates. I am happy to be here at the University of Pittsburgh and can’t wait to see what the next few years hold for me!
