Personal Statement

My name is Dr. Cindy Okpegbue.  I graduated with my bachelor's degree in sports medicine at Coppin State University. I then went on to receive my Doctorate in physical therapy from New York Institute of Technology.

Over the last few years of being a physical therapist, women's health and empowerment has been my passion. I have taken additional courses in this area of study to ensure I stay up to date with the latest clinical information. What I love about being a pelvic floor physical therapist, is the ability to educate and advocate for individuals experiencing Pelvic floor dysfunction. I believe in a holistic approach to care all while improving the patient’s functional mobility. I strive to help all women I encounter reach their goals.

My hobbies include running, lifting weights, listening to a podcast, traveling, and spending quality time with my friends and family. I have participated in a variety of sports throughout my life which includes playing collegiate volleyball at a D1 university. I enjoy meeting new people and assisting individuals in reaching their full potential.
