Kim Nartker

Owner/Founder PTA

Kim’s Story: Hi I am Kim and the founder/Owner of Stretch. I have worked in the field of PT for over 18+ years now. I opened Stretch to bridge the gap in our current healthcare system. I found that many of my clients were struggling to find honest care that was results driven, and that did not focus on exercise alone. I have always felt that manual therapy was a BIG part of helping the body heal. So in 2013, after doing my research on a good area for my first location, I opened my West Chester Location. I am very passionate about teaching my techniques and mentoring other PT/PTA’s treatment techniques that have worked for me over the years.

LB’s Story: Laura Brennan O’Lannerghty, known as LB to her friends and patients, grew up in Franklin, Tennessee where she developed her passion for physical therapy from her own experiences. Through various injuries from sports, gymnastics, and Irish dance, as well as a general curiosity for anatomy and how the human body works, it led her towards an interest in the health sciences field. When she began PT school, she also began working as a PT aide to gain real work experience while taking classes simultaneously. She enjoys getting to know people and treating each patient as an individual with a unique plan of care to get them pain free and back to their daily lives.

LB graduated from Saint Louis University in 2017 from their Doisy College of Health Sciences with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She received the award for Clinical Excellence in her final postgraduate year for outstanding performance while on clinical rotations. After graduation, LB moved to Camarillo, CA where she began her PT career at an outpatient orthopedic private practice in Ventura County. Here, she was able to work with patients of a wide variety through all walks of life- patients with complex neurologic disorders, post joint replacement surgeries, young athletes with sports injuries, and everything in between. A recent job transition for her boyfriend has brought the two of them to Cincinnati recently where they are excited to further their lives and careers.
