Meet The Mobile Team
Angel Hall, PTA
Angela grew up in Kountze, Texas. She went to PTA school in Kilgore and has been a PTA for almost 10 years. She chose this profession because she wanted to have a career where she could truly help people. She loves treating patients that are motivated to improve their health. When she’s not working, she loves to read, hike, and spend time with her family. A common misconception she hears about PTAs is that it stands for Parent Teacher Association! She’s heard this so many times. At the end of the day, her advice to people wanting to be active again is to just get up and move!

Erika graduated from MATC and is certified as both a CPT and CBT.
After having numerous injuries and seeing how great Physical Therapy worked for her, Erika decided to learn more about the body and how to help others live their best life. Erika enjoys spending her time hiking and kayaking with her husband, and their dog, Emma.
