Chris Rowell, MSPT
Chris Rowell received her undergraduate degree in Human Biology from Stanford University, and her Master of Science in Physical Therapy degree from Boston University. Her career took her from Boston back to the Farm, where she worked at both Stanford Hospital and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford for many years. Chris had always been interested in owning a practice, so after 10 years working for a local private outpatient clinic, she decided to follow her dream of opening NOW Physical Therapy. NOW PT opened in Mountain View, CA in 2018. Outside of work, Chris loves spending time with her son, trying new restaurants, and having fun outdoors.
"For years, I had the dream of starting my own PT practice. In 2018, with the deep confidence experience provides and with the encouragement of dear friends and family, I took the leap to begin this new venture. I'm excited for the chance to work harder than ever to start something I believe in. I am committed to making NOW PT a place YOU can believe in, where positive outcomes occur."
