Athletic Therapist, Acumen Reconditioning Director
LeeAnne Gullett began her celebrated career in 2009 as a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) in the states for high-level athletes, leagues, universities and facilities. She completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic Training and Health Science at Castleton University and her Master’s of Science Degree in Exercise Physiology at Mercyhurst University.
LeeAnne developed her skills through work with professional level baseball and hockey athletes. She was an Athletic Trainer for The New England Collegiate Baseball League- a collegiate summer league, sanctioned by the NCAA and Major League Baseball. The NECBL is a showcase for top college-level players and is considered one of the top summer leagues in the country.
LeeAnne was a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Crash Conditioning. Gullett focused on improving speed and power, recovery, injury rehabilitation, movement and motor skills with early career professional athletes, primarily hockey players.
A career highlight for her in the hockey world, she was the Head AT for an NCAA Division I hockey team where she experienced a trip to the Frozen Four with the team in Minneapolis and even received a ring.
She then spent two years working in Surgical Orthopedic Research as a Research Coordinator at the PanAm Clinic overseeing research for published literature. Over her time there she maintained her connections to the world of professional sports working with both the Winnipeg Jets and AAA hockey on fitness testing.
Rounding out her experience, Gullett has worked with NCAA Division II and III Football and Lacrosse players and as a Physician Extender at Orthopedic Clinics. She appreciates her broad range of patient care and experience and she credits this and mentors for the knowledge and guidance to where she is now.
LeeAnne believes connecting with athletes and patients is one of the most important aspects of care. She is invested in their outcomes and long term success. She considers people’s time, effort and wants to create progress that matches each person’s lifestyle individually. She also believes in a team approach to success (including all care providers), enjoys networking, learning and evolving with the profession.
LeeAnne assists Dr. Slade Shantz in the clinic when seeing patients and ensures they have a proper active exercise program. We believe in continuity of care after a consultation appointment for constant care and progress. Whether a patient needs surgery or not, oftentimes patients can benefit from exercise. Through clear communication, we can determine the optimal path for adding exercises and a proper reconditioning program. LeeAnne accomplishes this by:
- Creating and customizing a prescription for progressive exercise for our patients based on Dr. Slade Shantz diagnosis and plan.
- Communicating with the patient’s current Physiotherapist (or other care providers) to ensure proper progress and goal setting.
You can expect an e-mail or call from LeeAnne to begin the Acumen Clinic Experience. We believe in guiding athletes, individuals and the active population through a healing process and beyond. LeeAnne ensures this through proper communication, guidance and education.
