Andrea Lester

Early Intervention, MSPT

Andrea grew up in southern WV. She went straight from high school to college to earn her Bachelor degree in Psychology and her Master of Science in Physical Therapy both from Wheeling Jesuit University. She has 18 years of experience spending the last 15 of those years specializing in the treatment of children. She began working in WV in a variety of settings including an outpatient clinic, a nursing home, schools, and early intervention where she discovered her true passion for working with families who have children with gross motor delays. She has lived in Chesterfield since 2008 helping children from 0-21 years old in outpatient and early intervention programs. She provides physical therapy services to a variety of children including ones who have pain, broken bones, sprains, gait abnormalities, movement disorders, cardiac issues, POTS, Mitochondrial disorders, neuromuscular disorders, Torticollis, Concussion/TBI, arthrogryposis, and genetic/chromosomal conditions. Some of her recent continuing education courses have included Mulligan mobilization techniques, Cascade/SureStep/DMO products, foot positioning and gait mechanics, Functional Electrical Stimulation to substitute for bracing, and AMA Mitochondrial Medicine. She is certified as a KTP in Kinesio Tape and as an Early Intervention Professional in Virginia. Outside of therapy, she enjoys participating in activities outdoors, with her church, with her husband, 10 year old son, and 14 year old daughter.
