Dr. Natasha Bui

PT, DPT, CCRT

After a life-changing auto accident in 2010 and subsequently receiving physical therapy, Natasha became inspired to pursue the field of rehabilitation. Natasha received her B.S. in Psychology from the University of Houston and then went on to obtain her Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from George Fox University.

 

While in Oregon, she primarily focused on pediatrics during her first 3 years as a physical therapist, but after temporarily relocating to Chicago with her husband and their 2 cats (Spaghetti & Chalupa Batman) in 2019 she began working at the renowned Shirley Ryan Ability Lab where she transitioned to working in adult neuro. During this time, she was able to concurrently pursue her certification in canine rehabilitation (CCRT) through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute and became fully certified in 2021.

  

Natasha has always had a strong passion for animals that started back in her earlier years in Houston where she was involved with local shelters and rescues, particularly focusing on the city’s stray population. Now back in Portland, she is excited to finally be able to integrate her love for helping animals with her passion for physical therapy in order to better the lives of every single pet!
