Physical Therapist and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Rebecca Troulliet of Ponchatoula is one of three professionals selected by the
American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy (AASPT) to participate in the prestigious
Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship this fall.
Twice each year, three AASPT members are chosen to spend 7-10 days traveling
to three educational sites, spending one to two days each with noted leaders
in the Sports Physical Therapy field.
At each site, fellows observe their host therapist working with patients
in clinic. They participate in classes, gain hands-on experience and network.
Locations for the fall term included the University of Cincinnati in Ohio,
hosted by Bob Mangine; The Ohio State University in Columbus, hosted by
John DeWitt; and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, hosted by Corey Kunzer.
Mangine is the senior associate athletic director of medical services for
men’s basketball at the University of Cincinnati, and DeWitt is

Therapy Division. Kunzer is coordinator of the Mayo Clinic Physical Therapy
Sports Residency and supervisor for Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine at the
Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center in Rochester and at Mayo Clinic Square
