Michele Wood

Office Manager

Hi, I am Michele and was born and raised in Norfolk, VA. When you arrive at Restorative Physical Therapy, I am the first person to greet you! I have been working for Restorative since June 2021, after 20+ years of working in general dentistry. My initial introduction to Restorative was as a patient myself. I had an immediate connection with the staff along with the positive, relaxing environment. I enjoy helping patients improve their quality of life and I am excited to be a part of this team. In my free time, I like to travel with my husband and two children, gardening, bird watching, drinking sweet tea and cheering for the Miami Dolphins. Fun Fact: I can talk like Donald Duck and whistle using no fingers!
