Jessie and Carol have been friends for over 15 years. A friendship that blossomed over Jessie’s love of training and Carol finding her way in the health and wellness world. As Carol progressed through her education, they began talking about how amazing it would be to offer physical therapy and personal training alongside each other in a very intimate and individualized environment.
Well, here they are today living out their dream while challenging the status quo of what personal training and physical therapy are and how they are perceived. These two are a dynamic team who have always lifted each other up and is now here to do the same for the community they both love and call home.
DR. Carol Reader PT, DPT, SFMA.
Dr. Carol Roeder, PT, DPT was born and raised in Bend, Oregon. She graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2015 from The University of St. Augustine. Carol has spent the the early part of her career working in outpatient orthopedic clinics in the Greater San Diego area. In 2020 she decided it was time to return home to Bend where her family has continued to reside and her heart never truly left. This is when the dream of Osprey PT and Sports Medicine was born. Carol is joined by her husband, Paul, and their dog, Ren.
Carol has her Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) certification from the Functional Movement Systems program. This allows her to bring a functional movement pattern based perspective to her physical therapy practice.
In their free time you can find the Roeders outdoors - fishing, hiking or snowboarding depending on the season. Carol has also recently returned to training for and racing in triathlons. A passion she picked up in San Diego fueled by her desire to lead by example demonstrating a healthy lifestyle for her patients. She'll however be the first to admit that it's not always easy!
Carol also teaches in the newly established Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Oregon State - Cascades Campus educating our next generation of physical therapists!
Jessie Singleton grew up on the Oregon Coast and enjoyed vacationing with her family as a young girl in the National Forests surrounding Bend. After graduating with an Exercise and Sport Science degree from Oregon State University, Jessie knew she wanted to live in Central Oregon. She now resides on the outskirts of Redmond and loves to share the view of the mountains from her front porch.
In her free time, you can often find Jessie with her husband, Jake, and son, Wylie, exploring the great outdoors, going camping, hiking, mountain biking, and big game hunting. They have a blue heeler named Cash and a recently adopted kitty named Diesel that both love snuggle time. Jessie also enjoys spending time with extended family and friends, traveling to new places, gardening, and photography.
Jessie has numerous certifications proving her knowledge across the spectrum of health, fitness, strength, and conditioning including being a Certified Health and Fitness Specialist through the American College of Sports Medicine (ASCM-CPT) as well as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA-CSCS) and a Jumpstart Certified Trainer with Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT).
While overcoming personal health issues and a back fracture to
continue enjoying an athletic lifestyle, Jessie got involved in
research and writing, now has over 20 published articles in
established journals and magazines. She continues to complete
workshops for innovative training methods, finding it exciting to
pursue greater knowledge of the human body and feels many of her personal trials have bettered her as a trainer per her chosen
continuing education options and understanding the motivations needed to help conquer one’s tough objectives.
Ren has known since he was a young pup that he wanted to do something where he could serve people. He was finally able to make this dream a reality when he came to his new home with Paul and Carol in 2020 at the age of two. More so when his mom got her new office last year as there is more space for him to roam and interact with patients while also having a safe space of his own in the break room when he needs to rest.
Unfortunately, Ren had a bit of a rough start jumping between owners which has left him a little anxious at times, but once he gets to know you, you’re in the pack for life and you can always expect to be greeted by wiggles and a smile when you come in to the office. So please, be patient with the boy. He has so much love to give but has to learn he can trust you first.
In his spare time, Ren loves to sleep, , go for car rides, go on runs and hikes with Mom and Dad, and snuggle. Like his mom, Ren is a lover of all things soft and you can find them curled up on the couch together under the softest blanket in the house on any given day. He is also a connoisseur of fine food and is the pickiest eater in the house.
