About Wendy Volkert, PT
Wendy Volkert, PT has been with The Iowa Clinic since June 2016. When a friend of hers expressed her love for The Iowa Clinic, Wendy took interest. She came to find it fell in line with her professional needs and personal values, making The Iowa Clinic the perfect fit.
As an athlete in high school Wendy worked with physical therapists that helped reduce her pain, increase her function, and return her to her full athletic capabilities. At this young age she knew she wanted to help others like herself. She loves when patients return with a smile on their face once they have resumed their activity of choice - whether it is athletics, playing with their children or grandchildren, or merely being able to go about their day without thinking about pain.
Outside of The Iowa Clinic, Wendy is the Secretary of the Martial Artists for Children and Community Foundation. She often spends time with her husband, Chad, traveling both in the US and internationally, working out, walking their dogs, or volunteering. Her passion, outside of work and family, is Tae Kwan Do. Practicing since 2006, Tae Kwan Do helps Wendy maintain a healthy lifestyle, both mentally and physically.
