A STEP AHEAD'S
Carla Ruch, DPT
I am originally from Wisconsin and graduated from Marquette University. I have worked in pediatrics for 30+ years, during which I have had the opportunity to practice in a number of different settings including acute care, ICU, inpatient and outpatient rehab, outpatient clinic, and home based early intervention. I love getting to know my patients and their families and working with them to meet their goals. My husband and I have three adult sons and our youngest son is in high school. We have enjoyed watching all four of them participate in many different sports over the years. We are also huge Green Bay Packer fans!
Aundree Dougherty, PTA
After many years of struggling with not knowing what she wanted to be when she "grew up", Aundree became a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2012. She loves working with kids and helping them build the strength and confidence they need to help them reach their fullest possible functional independence. She is passionate about being environmentally conscientious and hopes to live a net zero life someday. Aundree also loves home improvement projects, hiking/backpacking, and musicals.
Erin Cutshaw, DPT
I graduated from Taylor University in 2014 with a degree in Exercise Science and then moved to the Chicagoland area to pursue my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Midwestern University. Following my graduation from PT school, my husband and I moved back to Greenwood, IN and have enjoyed being near family and friends! I began my career in Outpatient Orthopedics - serving both adults and adolescents. Always longing to work in Pediatrics, I switched career paths and began working with First Steps as well as in the clinic at ASA! I love being a part of ASA and collaborating with my amazing coworkers! In my time away from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kiddos! I love gardening, participating in my home church, reading, and watching football!
