Dr. Verlencia Walker-Goner, born and raised in Pascagoula, MS, received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, FL. Prior to receiving her doctorate, she attended Miles College in Fairfield, AL earning her bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor concentration in Chemistry and Mathematics.

Since graduating from FAMU she became certified in Decompression Cupping, Certified Sports and Orthopedic Manual Therapist (CSOMT), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), Personal Training, and Blood Flow Restriction Training. In the fall of 2018, she began a fellowship in Sports and Orthopedic Manual Therapy with the Institute of Athlete Regeneration where, upon completion, she will be prestigiously recognized and credentialed as a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapist (FAAOMPT).

Verlencia is a huge advocate for treatment focused on reducing or eliminating patient pain and increasing mobility without surgery or medication. She has always had an active lifestyle since an early age falling in love with soccer, softball, and basketball which coincidently landed her into a physical therapist office several times and sparking her love for the human body. In her spare time, her hobbies are competing in and training for bodybuilding competitions, listening to Podcasts, traveling, cooking, and spending time with my wonderful two fur babies Sadie and Baxter.
