Prior to graduating from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX, Dr. Peggie Williamson spent several years as a Wellness Coordinator for the NASA/Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA, and then as a College Professor teaching Anatomy & Physiology and Nutrition to undergraduate pre-nursing students. She is a life-long learner who consistently strives to improve her knowledge, skills, and abilities so that she remains on the cutting edge in her field. She routinely attends conferences, training workshops, and other continuing education opportunities in order to ensure that she continues to effectively and efficiently treat her patients.
Dr. Williamson has been active in sports such as running, softball, volleyball, and surfing for most of her life. She is committed to health and fitness and tries to inspire her patients to develop healthier lifestyle behaviors. She understands that overall wellness and quality of life result from more than just physical activity; it requires a holistic approach that also includes healthy eating, stress management, and sometimes creativity. This aligns well with the focus of Bellah Therapies.
Dr. Williamson first became interested in physical therapy years before becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy when she volunteered alongside physical therapists in local schools and hospitals after getting her dog certified in Pet Therapy. This was when she developed a passion for helping patients of all ages and conditions achieve their functional goals and return to their highest level of functioning. In her free time, Dr. Williamson loves running, bicycling, traveling, hiking, and spending time with her loved ones.
