Whitney Chandler, PTA/L
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, I grew up riding horses, playing basketball and volleyball. I spent my days on the lake with my friends and watching football. After graduating high school, I spent 2 years in South Florida going to a small university then transferring to The University of Alabama for 3 years. Throughout college I was a nanny for various families with special needs which helped define my career path.
Graduating with a B.A. in Psychology and Communication Studies, I moved to Colorado to pursue my passion. I knew I wanted to do something to help people.
In 2013 I moved to Wilmington, NC to live by the beach and to take my prerequisite classes for PTA school. In 2014 I moved to Asheville to be close to my mom and family and attend South College of Asheville, graduating with an Associate in Applied Science in Physical Therapist Assistant. I immediately started working in Natural Environment Pediatrics; traveling to various homes, daycares and schools to treat kids. I then joined the Higher Ground family in December of 2016. I am very lucky to be able to work with such amazing therapists!
When I am not working, you can find me in the woods camping with my boyfriend Zach and our dogs, bowling, going on adventures with friends, fishing or watching Alabama football, roll tide!
