Best Hero: Stacy McCooey, PT
In a town lousy with elite athletes, state-of-the-art athletic facilities and clinics for the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries, the people who lay their hands on the superstars know their stuff, and Stacy McCooey is one of the best. Board certified in orthopedics and working through a manual-therapy fellowship, McCooey will soon have an alphabet soup behind her name (DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT—that’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy, Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach). On the side, she’s a cyclist, Nordic skier and has done handstands on top of Kilimanjaro and the base camp of Mt. Everest. “I am,” she says, “ridiculously passionate about my job.”
