Sheila Gaffney is an integral part of the Walk Strong team. Her 45 years of experience as a physical therapist and bilingual Spanish speaking abilities are huge assets to our team. She is able to provide physical therapy to our post op patients and evaluate patients for our pre and post op clinics along with being able to interpret for other team members. Sheila began working with Dr. Christie 22 years ago when he was practicing at Vanderbilt. Sheila has recently retired, and volunteers at Project Cure sorting and packaging medical equipment several hours a week along with donating many hours to help prepare for the Walk Strong mission trips. Sheila grew up in Venezuela and has special love for the Latin culture, her favorite part about working with walk strong is having the ability to give back to those less fortunate in a Latin country like the one she grew up in.
