“We’re very pleased to have Lisa and Kayla join our team,” said Bobby Oliverio, director of the Buckhannon Clinic. “Their philosophy is a great fit with our mission to provide hands-on therapy services that improve the lives of our patients.”

The West Fairmont clinic also opened its doors to two new employees. Mary Mayer, a certified athletic trainer, started in May as a rehabilitation technician and Melissa Henry started in June as a physical therapist.

“It’s very exciting to be able to provide opportunities for new therapists in our hometown where Country Roads got its start,” said Derek Falkenstein, co-owner and West Fairmont clinic director. “As a former player on the Women’s Basketball Team at FSU, Henry will also be able to show genuine compassion and empathy to our patients with sports injuries. We’re very fortunate to have two new members of our team that are sports enthusiasts and committed to helping our patients get back to their game immediately, ”said Falkenstein.

“I couldn’t be happier working with Derek and his team.  I am looking forward to helping all the patients get back on the road to recovery,” said Melissa Henry.
