A Step Ahead's Services

What Parents Say

"Our daughter had excellent care here. She spent 2 years working at A Step Ahead with her therapists doing their best to help her get back so much of what she lost in an automobile wreck. This place was wonderful! I am so thankful for the help they provided her!"

About Us

A Step Ahead Pediatric Therapy, inc

A Step Ahead Pediatric Therapy was established in the year 2000 by Lisa Wagers and Teresa Rodgers. Their journey towards founding this organization began with Lisa's initial career as a pediatric physical therapist with First Steps, where she developed a deep sense of empathy for families who had to drive long distances to receive therapy once their child aged out of First Steps. Meanwhile, Teresa, who initially worked as a registered nurse (RN), embarked on an educational journey t acquire her Masters in Business Administration (MBA)

Recognizing a significant gap in pediatric services within their beloved community, these two dedicated sisters decided t take action. With Teresa's knowledge in  business and Lisa's background in therapy, together they jointly launched A Step Ahead Pediatric Therapy driven by their commitment to making these vital services easily accessible to those in need. With their shared values and familial connection, the company places a string emphasis on the well being of families, both among their clients and their own team members. This focus on family-centered care is a cornerstone of their mission.
