Dr. Berkey pursued her undergraduate studies in Psychology at Tulane University and received her degree in physical therapy in 1989 from Northwestern University Medical School. She returned to her home state of New York to pursue her passion of working with adolescent athletes. She had the privilege of working for a private sports medicine practice in conjunction with Hospital for Joint Diseases, Special Surgery, the New York Rangers, The New York Knicks, collegiate athletics and was a 2 year team therapist for World Cup Gymnastics. She received advanced training in orthotic evaluation and fabrication eventually operating her own business distributing foot orthoses.
Relocating to Peachtree City in 2006 with her husband and 3 children, she continued in a physician owned sports medicine clinic. In 2011, she decided to once again specialize in lower extremity injuries and has been with Physical Therapy Centers of Georgia since its inception. The main attraction to Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia was not only the company’s advanced treatment philosophy and ideals of excellence, but the genuine passion for patient care and the generous time given through various programs such as Fit Feet (Special Olympics), the Breast Cancer 2-Day Journey medical team and surgical medical missions.
Dr. Berkey has completed advanced studies at the University of St Augustine in 2013, earning the degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy and advanced knowledge for lower extremity biomechanics, running and foot ware. A new developing passion is the treatment of pharmacology-induced neuropathy due to chemotherapy, and as always, a passion for pediatrics. She has recently joined forces with Atlanta Technical College as an adjunct instructor of Pharmolcolgy and therapeutic modalities. She spends her spare time watching her children participate in sports while providing on-field emergency care, photographing sporting events, teaching in children’s ministries and participating in local and abroad missions.
