My name is Mackenzie Gruber and I am the Secretary for the University of Pittsburgh Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2022. I am originally from Hermitage, PA, and attended Westminster College for undergrad where I received a degree in Neuroscience while also minoring in Spanish. I was also a four-year member of the Westminster women’s soccer team. In my “free time”, I enjoy trying new coffee shops, watching sports, spending time with my family and saying hi to every dog I see. After knowing that I wanted to pursue a career as a physical therapist for a while, I set my sights on the best and did not stop working until I got to Pitt. My interests include pediatric and sports physical therapy. I’m positive that I am in the best place to provide me meaningful clinical experiences and the education to become a top notch DPT.
