About Us

what makes gaia unique

Gaia Women’s Physical Therapy and Wellness is the first of its kind in the West Virginia panhandle. We have recently expanded the ability to serve parts of Maryland and Virginia in-person and through each state virtually.


We are passionate about providing quality, evidence-based care to each woman in a way which is holistic, individualized, compassionate and professional. If you need to be heard, to be supported, to be informed, and treated in a way in which no other health care provider has, Gaia Women’s PT is the provider for you.

founder & physical therapist

Over the past 7 years of experience as a PT, and nearly 5 years as a mom, Maggie has discovered her passion for helping women navigate their own bodies at all stages of life, but especially the passage into motherhood.  

After struggling with her own postpartum journey and having to travel between several states to find quality and specific care, she decided this was a service that needed to be provided locally.

Now, Maggie is on a mission to educate, support, and promote optimal women's care in the Panhandle. She is eager to create a place where prenatal and postpartum care is natural, routine, and available.  

When Maggie is not treating patients, you can find her hiking with her husband Joe, chasing 4-year-old Paige and 2-year-old Tori around the back yard, cooking up snacks in the kitchen, or snuggling up with the pups Ledge and Gordy and MJ the cat.  She also enjoys a good run and Cabernet. 

Maggie graduated from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 2012 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy.  She is a certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist with specific postdoctoral training in obstetrics and pelvic health.
