  • Sammie Cockerham, Office Manager


    Sammie works in Ankeny at Elevate Physical Therapy.  She manages the front desk and assists our patients and the therapists. I absolutely love experiencing the healing process first hand and celebrating our patients progress on their journey to living a pain free, healthy life!  Growing up in the country I was always outside playing, drawing, camping, riding dirt bikes, and shooting bows. My upbringing influenced me to live an active and adventurous life as an adult. I spend my free time weightlifting, painting, rock climbing, and backpacking on the weekends. After graduating high school, I got certified as a personal trainer and coached for 2 years. Doing this made me realize how much I love helping people live healthier and happier lives. Although I am still unsure about what I want to go back to school for, I want to keep my training career alive by pursuing more coaching certifications and advancing my own skills as a trainer.
