Nina Limardo Pickett, PT, DPT
Nina is a career changer who started as a performing artist and business writer, but decided to switch careers to a profession that serves the community on an individual, daily basis. Her background as a dancer coupled with an avid interest in science led her to a career in Physical Therapy.
Nina has experience in Pediatrics and Orthopedics and loves helping young children and their families achieve functional goals and set the foundation for later success in development. She also loves empowering families and continually learning from her colleagues, professional courses, and her patients. She spends her spare time being creative, reading, travelling, and hanging out with her family.

I always have some creative, crafty project going on. I like to make soap, crochet, sew, and do my own amateur woodworking in my spare time. I am also a trained musician and like to sing and play piano and guitar.
