Troulliet Selected to Prestigious Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship

North Oaks Rehabilitation Services 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 a Physical Therapist with Ohio State Sports Medicine and assistant clinical professor and director of residencies for the university’s Physical 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 in Minneapolis.

Troulliet shares that this opportunity has helped her navigate the challenge of continuing to develop her skills while simultaneously working in her field.

“Doing so under the mentorship of recognized clinical experts is a dream come true,” she affirms.

Troulliet earned a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU) in Hammond and a doctorate in Physical Therapy through Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. She is an active alumna of SLU, currently serving as an inaugural board member for the university’s GOLD Council, which is a leadership organization dedicated to fostering and sustaining relationships with graduates of the last decade.

Professionally, she has chaired the Northshore District of the Louisiana Physical Therapy Association since 2017 and is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association.

Troulliet has given of her time and expertise as a sideline coverage volunteer at SLU football games since 2018 and high school football games in Tangipahoa Parish since 2017. In 2017 and 2019, she served as a medical volunteer for the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in New Orleans.

The Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship is funded by the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy and sponsored by DJO Global and LightForce Therapy Lasers.
