Riley first began thinking about physical therapy after she spent time with her friend’s younger brother who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy; she witnessed his functional progress over the course of a few months and was intrigued and inspired by the possibility of helping others to achieve their best quality of life. After spending time shadowing in various physical therapy clinics while in high school, she decided that it was a great fit for her because she would be able to combine her love for teaching and promoting physical activity.

Riley earned her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Rhode Island in 2018. She then went on to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Plymouth State University in 2021.

Bruce Parker

PT - Concord

Bruce comes to Granite State PT with more than 24 years of experience as a physical therapist. Bruce completed a BA in Leisure Services in 1979 and a Master’s in Fitness and Health Promotion in 1985. Bruce then took a leave from the health care field and worked in Corporate Training and Staff Development for Nordstrom, a nation-wide clothing retailer.

Bruce was injured in a skiing accident that required physical therapy, and he decided that physical therapy was what he really want to do. Bruce decided to go back to university and pursue a new career in physical therapy. Bruce was fortunate enough to be accepted to the Physiotherapy Program at Rober Gordon University in Aberdeen Scotland.

After completing the program, Bruce and his wife stayed in Scotland for another year. Bruce worked at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in a variety of settings, including neuro/cardiac, outpatient, care of the elderly, and the surgical unit. They had a wonderful experience living in Scotland, working in the NHS system, enjoying the culture, and traveling all around the country.

Bruce and his wife then returned to Seattle, WA, where they are both originally from to be close to family and settle down. Bruce worked for four years in skilled nursing and then moved to a clinic specializing in orthopedic outpatient and industrial rehabilitation (workers comp). After four years, Bruce transitioned into managing the clinic and treating clients for the next 14 years.

Bruce assisted in growing the business to have 16 therapy staff and 5 front office staff. He says it was challenging and rewarding at the same time. Bruce was able to build and develop strong and lasting relationships with many of the clients due to the extended period of time spent in PT.

In Bruce’s eyes, one of the most rewarding aspects of being a PT is developing relationships with your patients, helping them to improve their lives and get back to the things they love to do in a pain-free manner. It requires a great deal of empathy and understanding of what your clients/patients are going through. Often you are just listening to what they are telling you.

Last year Bruce, decided to make a change and move across the country to Concord, NH. Bruce and his wife both have ties to the Capitol area from when they were young, so it felt natural to investigate new opportunities in NH. Bruce and his wife had an exciting drive across the country with their two dogs and have settled into their new home in New England. Bruce is very excited and happy to be with Granite State PT as he truly believes in the values and mission of the company.
