She loves helping people recover from their injuries and return to their art, sport or work. She has authored chapters for Physical Therapy texts as well as contributed articles to peer reviewed clinical journals. With Shelly's depth of knowledge in musculoskeletal function, she regularly shares this knowledge, giving educational talks in the community. With Shelly's extensive post professional manual therapy training, she is an expert in manual physical therapy and movement analysis and incorporates these skills and techniques in her daily patient care. Shelly earned her Master's degree in Physical Therapy at the Emory University Allied Health Program in Physical Therapy and Bachelor's degree at the University of California at Berkeley where she apprenticed in the Athletic Training program.

Shelly is one of only six Fellows treating in Portland.

Shelly's entire professional career has focused on treating orthopedic injuries with a personal, hands-on and cooperative approach in order to meet her patient's goals and keep their individual needs at the forefront of treatment direction. Shelly is committed to doing the best job possible for her patients, maximizing improvements and gains with a skilled approach, and takes pride in meeting her patient where they are at and taking them where they want to go. Restoring quality of life is what she loves and does best, and the principle on which she founded PT 360°.

Shelly spends her non-PT time with her family and friends, always seeking new adventures through travel both internationally and locally, as well as constantly being pulled along to new exploits with her daughter. She is always looking for a new paddle boarding, kayaking or snowshoeing spot to add to the weekend exploration!

Liz Borromeo, Front Desk Administrator

Liz Borromeo, Front Desk Administrator

Liz's primary passion is dance, and she teaches full-time, working with dancers ages 1-71, but her love of continued challenges keeps her with one foot in the world of physical therapy. She also enjoys working with patients from behind the desk here at PT 360° and from time to time out on the gym floor as well, bringing extra skills, including Alexander technique.

Liz lives in Vancouver, WA with her husband and their menagerie of off-beat pets. Liz is a sci-fi TV and movie addict as well as a horror film aficionado. She is one of those people living in the Pacific Northwest who can't wait for the rainy season each year, and her favorite color is (no surprise here) black. She does try to occasionally wear a colored shirt, but always wears a smile!
