Colleen Rogers, Physical Therapy Tech
I was born in Carlsbad, NM but grew up in the small village of Loving, NM. I have been with Gallien Therapy Services since 2016. I am currently enrolled in San Juan College to become a PTA. My little family consists of three boys and my husband and I. I enjoy being outdoors, playing catch with my boys, fishing, watching baseball and football, hunting, and making memories with my family. I love helping others and being a part of their rehab journey! My favorite part about working in a PT clinic is being able to see the smile on the patient’s face when they finally accomplish that one goal they said they never could!
Patient Care Coordinator

She is a registered yoga teacher at the 200 hour level through Yoga Alliance, and has over 1000 teaching hours in all her years as an instructor. Of course, working in a physical therapy office was the perfect match for her!

On her spare time, she enjoys hiking with her two dogs, and son, Tahoe. She enjoys traveling, yoga, camping, mountain biking, and 4x4 trails in her husband’s big ole’ truck with the whole family.
