Where did you grow up? Savannah, Georgia
What brought you to Warner Robins?
After finishing PT school, Tassie worked at Emory University Hospital for 4 years and taught for the graduate program in Physical Therapy. After working for a teaching hospital and totally revamping and directing a physical therapy program in Elberton, Georgia, Tassie knew she needed to be able to treat patients in an unencumbered environment. Every patient has unique needs and concerns and those are best addressed by the physical therapist, one-on-one. NO COOKIE-CUTTER treatments. So, after moving to Warner Robins, she, together with Mike Cantrell, MPT, opened the Cantrell Center for Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine in 1992.
What do you like doing in your free time?
Tassie loves exercising, reading, traveling, and being with family.
Interesting Fact: Tassie is of Greek Heritage and she speaks Greek fluently. Tassie loves sharing this heritage with middle Georgians at the Annual Greek Festival. It is usually held in October at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Macon. There’s incredible food (yes, Tassie cooks), music, and dancing (yes, Tassie dances too!). The weekend is great so watch for it and come!
