Ashley Decker – PTA

Ashley Decker


Originally from Union Springs, NY, Ashley attended Cayuga Community College where she received her Associate Degree in Liberal Arts-Math and Science. She continued her studies in Exercise Science at SUNY College at Brockport where she earned her bachelor's degree. After completing her bachelor's degree, she decided to take a year off to travel the world, work and shadow possible professions she was interested in within the heath care field. After attending the open house for the PTA program at OCC, she knew that physical therapy was the career that was meant for her and her love of working with and helping others. After graduating from OCC in 2019 as a Physical Therapist Assistant, she accepted a position at COAST Physical Therapy. In her free time, she enjoys exercising, doing yard work, spending time with family and friends, walking her dog and just being outside, no matter what the season. Ashley believes, “Exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude and your mood.”
