Julie Reynolds-Gillespie, P.T., DPT

Physical Therapist

Women's Health Specialist

Julie received her Physical therapy degree from Mount Saint Mary’s College in 1987.  She received her Masters and Clinical Doctorate in Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy in 2000 and 2002 from USC. 

Aftern earning her doctorate, Julie was recruited by USC because of her experience owning and operating Feminine Focus, an OB/GYN Women’s Health practice in San Dimas, California. At Feminine Focus, Julie treated women for individual physical therapy and lead pre and postpartum fitness classes, both in the pool and in the studio.  

At USC, Julie started the first university based Women’s Health practice in the nation.  Here she taught Women’s Health, Clinical Neurology and Anatomy.  Along with teaching, Julie helped open a Comprehensive Continence Center where she worked closely with USC physicians from the Urology and Colorectal Department to develop a protocol for pelvic floor rehabilitation, pre-post operative urological and colorectal surgeries.

Julie has published several articles in the field of pelvic floor rehabilitation and presented at National Conferences.  She wrote a chapter for the Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Training textbook published in 2012, and she has taught Women’s Health in the physical therapy programs at Mt. St. Mary’s College, Northridge and Loma Linda.  She has also helped several physical therapy centers begin successful Women’s Health programs, including St. Joseph’s in Orange and Western College.

She is the author of Magical Multiple Moments, a collection of stories from Mom’s of multiples.  As a mother of triplets and two singletons, she is quite the expert in this area!  She enjoys skiing, hiking, running and ice-skating.  She is also an avid quilter.

Julie is excited to bring her expertise to The Cypress Center's Women's Health Program and to join our amazing team of clinicians. If you would like to contact her she can be reached at: julie@thecypresscenter.com.
