Leanne McDowell, MS, CCC-SLP, Crew Leader
Originally from upstate New York, Leanne earned her Bachelor's degree in 1992 in Speech-Language Pathology from SUNY Cortland. After working in the New York City public schools for 2 years while earning her Master's degree in Communication Disorders from Adephi University in 1994, Leanne returned to her upstate roots and began working at a local hospital where she treated both geriatric and pediatric populations. This is where she found her true passion working with geriatric patients! In 2000 she reconnected with and married her High School crush who is active duty in the US Navy. Having bounced coast to coast several times due to her husband's career, Leanne was afforded the opportunity to work in a variety of geriatric rehab settings with many of the largest national rehab providers in the country. She has spent more than half of her 25+ year career in various senior management positions and has seen first hand how the healthcare industry has changed over the years. One of her biggest frustrations as a therapist is seeing her patients being discharged from
services prematurely and not able to receive the appropriate care that they so desperately need often due to transportation issues or physical limitations. Because of this, she immediately fell in love with the concept and philosophy of On The Move Rehab- bringing therapy directly into the patient's homes where they need it the most! Leanne is beyond thrilled to join our team and to launch On The Move Rehab in beautiful Coronado, CA where her husband is currently stationed.
Bonnie Baczewski, DPT
Bonnie is a physical therapist from the Washington D.C. area that has been making California home since 2016. She is a graduate of the University of St. Augustine in Florida and her experience as a physical therapist includes post-surgical PT, geriatric PT with emphasis on general deconditioning and fall prevention, home health, and the chronic low back pain population.
Prior to beginning PT school, Bonnie worked as a full time personal trainer in the D.C. area. She continues to utilize her personal training certification, training clients on the side of her PT career. Her clientele has mainly consisted of athletes, ranging from club sport athletes to NFL players, the bariatric population, and the geriatric population.
Bonnie’s love for the profession of physical therapy has only grown since graduating and her passion has become working with the aging population to ensure safety, allowing as much independence as possible, and overall bettering their quality of life. Bonnie originally moved to California for a travel PT position, where she planned to stay 3 months before moving to a new job. However, she fell in love with Southern California and has no plans to leave anytime soon. Outside of work, she loves to travel, spend time on the beach, workout, and hangout with friends.
