Always working on improving our treatment skills.
Our therapists went to college an average of 7 years to be trained, but our education didn't stop there. We believe that providing the best care to our patients means we have to keep searching and studying the latest research, learning and honing new skills, and evaluating our patient outcomes to be the most effective therapists in our community.

Cherie Young - Office Manager
Cherie originally hails from western Oregon and has worked for Altitude for 5 years. Her favorite thing about working here is "definitely the patients". "Due to the personal, one on one approach we use in providing care for each person who walks through our doors, we get to know our patients really well and they become almost like family. It’s common for former patients to stop in just to say hi and catch up with us."
Outside of the office, Cherie is a youth leader at her church and a member of the local roller derby team, the Beet City Bombers. She enjoys adventuring with her husband, T.J. and their animals (3 dogs and a cat), as well as kayaking, biking, reading (anything and everything), mentoring, swimming, sewing, doll making, crossword puzzles, hiking, roller skating and trying new foods.

Savanna is the receptionist at our Midland Clinic. She is originally from Winnemucca, Nevada and made the move to Boise to attend Boise State University where she studied Zoology. Before joining the Altitude team, Savanna was a dog trainer who specialized in behavior modification. However, she has a genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which affects her joints and other parts of her body. Because of this, she ended up spending a lot of time in Physical Therapy herself which made her realize that working in a PT office might be the best place for her since she can empathize with other patients. When she's not working, Savanna enjoys spending time with her 12 year old sister and competing in dog sports with her pups Bourbon and Kiah."
