As a runner of 20+ years, her passion lies, not only in helping runners/athletes return to sport, but also in injury prevention so that runners/athletes can enjoy a lifetime of being active. She also particularly enjoys helping those with chronic pain enjoy life.
She also believes in the power of wellness and its ability to give people back their quality of life. Rebecca has a love of learning and can often be overheard excitedly sharing some new research she read about.

Diane Threlkeld PT, DPT, CMPT
Diane graduated from the University of Evansville in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and in 2013 with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She became Astym certified, a soft tissue mobilization technique, in 2017 and a certified manual therapist in 2019. This specialized training helped further develop her clinical knowledge of treating musculoskeletal conditions.
She spent the last 8+ years treating patients in an outpatient physical therapy setting, focusing on orthopedic diagnoses of all kinds. As a lifelong competitive swimmer, she has always enjoyed working with athletes. She took up triathlon about 8 years ago, developing a passion for cycling/running and the endurance training required for such rigorous races. She finds helping athletes of all ages overcome injuries and return to their sport/activity extremely rewarding.
Diane was drawn to self pay physical therapy because she was tired of her practice being dictated by corporate and insurance demands. This style provides more freedom to address all client concerns at once, allows for more one-on-one attention, values continuity of care between the client/clinician, and flexibility to schedule appointments that fit everyone’s busy schedules. She is a passionate believer that physical health improves all aspects of life, including mental and emotional health.
Diane lives in Glen Carbon with her puppy, Georgie. When she’s not swimming or hitting the MCT trails on her bike or on foot, she enjoys traveling all over the world, reading, and baking. She’s always looking for a new place to race and is planning to ride the Trans America bike route in 2021!
Specialties: Runners, Swimmers, Cyclists, Triathletes

Lacy Koelker, RYT 200
Lacy first began doing yoga for the physical benefits before realizing the mental and emotional benefits that she would receive.
After being a hairdresser for 15 years, she decided she was ready for a change of pace, but still desired to help others feel good about themselves. What better way than to share her love of yoga with others and see them receive all the benefits.
When Lacy is not doing yoga or hair, she enjoys sharing love and laughter with her family and friends, playing with her dog Fozzie and cat Olive, going on walks and gardening.
