Cossette Burnham, PT, DPT, CPI

Emily Smith, PT, DPT, OCS

  

Cossette was raised in UT, enjoying the beauty of the Wasatch Front. From a young age, she was making home videos of workouts, conducting family fitness classes and was on the move constantly. Physical therapy was an obvious career choice for her. She completed her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at the University of Montana. She then made her way to Jackson to enjoy the mountains for a number of years before returning to school in Utah to pursue her doctorate in physical therapy at the University of Utah. Cossette specializes in pelvic health and pelvic rehab for all genders and ages as well as orthopedic rehabilitation. She is a therapeutic Pilates instructor and enjoys using it as a tool for recovery. When not in the clinic you can find her enjoying the outdoors or curled up with a good book.  

 
  

Emily grew up in Jackson and has recently moved back after completing a rigorous year of Orthopedic Residency at the University of Utah. Her continued education includes two bachelor's degrees in Exercise Science and Spanish from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. Her graduate program at the University of Montana granted her several faculty-awarded honors highlighting her leadership, passion and integrity. Emily has always loved being active, participating in swimming, track and rodeo at Jackson Hole High School where she graduated as valedictorian in 2011. She competed in the heptathlon in track and field at the college level and continues to pursue the outdoors with biking, hiking, skiing and running. 

 

Hearing Andi's story provides some insight behind the passion she has for her  profession. She became a Physical Therapist by chance. Her parents were involved in a private airplane accident in 1993; both survived the ordeal. Her mother suffered minor injuries, but her father sustained a spinal cord injury. Andi quit her sports marketing job to assist with her father's rehabilitation. As she followed him through this process, she learned something about an extraordinary group of people. Physical Therapists are not just exercise teachers; they are compassionate, caring individuals. When her father finished his rehabilitation, she returned to school to answer her calling of becoming a Physical Therapist. After spending 15 years away from Jackson, she returned to raise her two daughters near her family.
