           Madeline Hood - Office Manager & Certified Personal Trainer


Hi! My name is Madeline Hood. I am the office manager here at Ivy Physical Therapy as well as an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. I have been part of the Ivy Physical Therapy family since 2012 where I started as a tech, and can't imagine myself anywhere else! My husband, Jessie, and I love anything outdoors and spending time with our dogs! I started my fitness journey a year after graduating high school. Like many, I had gained the “Freshman 15” plus some! I started out doing DVD workouts such as Insanity, going on crazy diets that I could never maintain, and yo-yoing up and down. It took me about 6 months of researching and trial and error before I finally got on the right track. I developed a huge passion for fitness and decided to become a personal trainer in hopes of helping people avoid some of the struggles that I went through! Diet and exercise don’t have to be extreme. My goal as a trainer is to make exercising a maintainable lifestyle. I strive to make working out fun and love every minute with my clients!

Hello, I am Margaret Standridge. I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in 1988 with a Bachelor of science in Occupational Therapy. I was attracted to the field of Hand Therapy while in college, and became a Certified Hand Therapist in 1994. I specialize in the treatment of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries/disorders with a focus on returning patients back to their previous level of performance. While I have been blessed with opportunities to work as adjunct staff at UCA, student fieldwork educator, clinic manager, lecturer in the field of Hand Therapy both on a local and national level, my greatest pleasure is working one on one with patients and facilitating their recovery.
