In my spare time, I enjoy going camping, riding dirt bikes, watching
my children play sports, and hanging out with Ellie – my dog/our
clinic’s therapy dog!
What do you like most about being a Physical Therapist:
I like to give all I can to each and every patient. Treat them like
family and watch them progress so they can achieve their goals!

Damaris Bowers, Office Manager
I have been with Performance Physical Therapy from the beginning 2010
and have helped grow the practice to a thriving outpatient clinic. I
am responsible for billing, human resources, and receptionist
functions. What I love the most about my job is the patients and how
they become family.

Since joining the team in November 2018 I have become Cold Laser
Certified and have been educated on adminstortrating hot packs and ice
message as well as monitor patients during their exercises.

Stephanie Barcelo, Administrator
I started in 2012 as a receptionist and since then have evolved to
home health care coordinator, authorizations, insurance verifier, and
handle all admin functions. What I enjoy the most about my job is
going to the Assisted Living Facilities and participating with the
patients in special activities.
I am a mother of three so there isn’t much spare time. I am either
traveling to swim meets, volunteering in classrooms or attending
another function for them. If I’m not doing something for one of my
children I like to bake, read, go to concerts, and working out.

I am a former student of Keiser and graduated with a degree as a
Physical Therapy Assistant. I enjoy working with patients and seeing
their outcome through determination and hardwork. What I enjoy the
most about my job is the fact that I can spend the entire time working
one-on-one with my patient.
When I am not at work you can find me with my family or in my garage
working on cars. I also enjoy rock climbing, hiking, riding BMX and
