This episode is a real treat to release as our great colleague, Morgan Denny, PT joins us for an in depth discussion on all the aspects of her passion filled career. Her influence as a teacher, a clinician, a leader, and as a friend has been consistently positive, and its no wonder we feel like we always learn something from her when she shares stories like the ones on this episode.

Morgan Denny received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Montana in 2006. She has focused her work in outpatient orthopedic settings, addressing conditions and people of all sorts, both in the United States and around the globe. Morgan believes that it is hard to be happy without first being healthy, and holds a strong belief that all people should have access to the resources they need to lead able-bodied and fulfilling lives. With this in mind, she began traveling to Haiti to provide rehabilitative therapy in 2013, and found passion in addressing the need in this country.

While Morgan’s professional life has focused on physical therapy, she is also a strong advocate for implementing sustainable living practices. She spent two years creating a non-profit project called EcoJaunt, whose mission was to travel throughout the United States creating how-to videos that teach sustainable living tactics, which were then presented at schools and community forums, and on the website EcoJaunt.org.

Morgan is a conservationist and strives to reuse everything possible in order to decrease unnecessary waste that will pollute the environment. She has seen the importance of this practice worldwide, in travels through India, Nepal, Fiji, and Haiti, where waste clutters the streets and waterways, creating increasing health concerns. Morgan believes this to be a particularly important concept in Haiti, where the waste disposal system is lacking and water is unsafe for consumption.

While her treatment focus in Oregon has included orthopedic conditions and sports rehab, Morgan also enjoys working with pediatric and neurological cases abroad. Before becoming a PT, Morgan worked in a variety of settings (camps, clinics, therapeutic riding facilities) with diverse populations including children and adults with disabilities, varying neurological disorders, and children with systemic diseases, such as cancer and cystic fibrosis.
