Dr. Melissa McElroy grew up in southeast Kentucky. She began her collegiate studies at Thomas More College in northern Kentucky before transferring to Bellarmine University where she earned her bachelor’s in health science in 2005 and her doctorate of physical therapy in 2007. Since then, she has had the opportunity to work in various settings across the country including pediatrics and wound care, but returned to Louisville, KY, in 2010 to focus her career on her specialization in pelvic health. In 2015 Melissa became a board-certified Women’s Health Specialist (WCS) and has been committed to furthering the pelvic health aspect of physical therapy practice ever since. She is passionate about providing specialized care to all persons with pelvic health concerns. This is evident through her dedication to community education in speaking engagements and volunteer work, as well as her role as adjunct faculty in Bellarmine University’s physical therapy program.
Dr. McElroy is Dunn Physical Therapy’s clinical director and continues to practice at our Springhurst location.

Andrea received her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Western Kentucky University and then went on to achieve her Physical Therapy Assistant degree from Jefferson Community and Technical College. Her passion has always been with sports and overall wellness, which prompted her to seek a nutrition certificate in Dietetics in 2009 from Eastern Kentucky University.
Andrea has participated in high-end athletics the majority of her life. As a 3-year captain and starter for WKU’s Women’s Division I soccer program, Andrea originally planned to go on and play at the national level, but after a national women’s league folded the year she graduated, she decided a new career choice was in order. “Physical therapy initially found me and since then I have enjoyed the journey of returning people to the full spectrum of wellness. I am honored and blessed to facilitate care and it truly is a rewarding opportunity to be in the position that I am.”
Andrea is a proud 2013 and 2014 Louisville Ironman finisher and continues to compete in triathlons nationwide as well as in road racing. She uses this passion and discipline that she has with sports and applies it to her work in physical therapy. Her career focus has been on orthopedics, sports injury and training protocols, and women’s health diagnoses including pelvic dysfunction and prenatal and post-partum conditions. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the Kentucky Physical Therapy Association, and the International Pelvic Pain Society.
When Andrea needs a break from training, the experience of travel is one of her favorite things. You can also often find Andrea in the kitchen exploring new recipes. She attends both St. Leonard Church and Southeast Christian Church.
Sarah graduated from Bellarmine University with her bachelor’s in Health Science and a doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2010. Her professional background primarily includes working in pediatrics across various settings, but she has also really enjoyed working with individuals of all ages. She completed her general pediatric clinical at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where she gained professional experience in early intervention services and outpatient pediatric services focusing on neuro-developmental delays, as well as congenital and acquired impairments. Beyond pediatrics, she brings additional expertise within lifespan orthopedics (acute injuries, chronic pain, and post-surgical care) and lifespan neurological impairments / disorders (CVA, traumatic and non-traumatic head injuries, and balance disorders). She has additional experience with aquatic therapy, neurological dysfunctions, balance and movement disorders, and orthopedic conditions.
Sarah decided to join Dunn Physical Therapy’s team to invest in her knowledge of pediatrics and pelvic floor dysfunction, providing the opportunity to help children and their families regain control. Areas of focus in pediatrics include bed wetting, constipation, fecal incontinence, and bladder incontinence. “Our children live in a complex world these days and they need to have a place where they can be heard and feel comfortable working on sensitive concerns. Working with them to better understand what is going on with their body as well as empowering them to take control of their life can be so rewarding. A child’s primary job is to be a kid, and we can help them get back to that job without fear of embarrassment.”
In her spare time, she loves to be with her husband exploring the world through the eyes of their two girls and dog.

“I like to work with my patients as a team. As we determine their end goal, I make sure they know I will work through plans A–Z in order to get them there. Everyone deserves to feel good and allow their body to function at their highest capacity.”
Linsey earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Bellarmine University in December 2012 as well as her bachelor of health science in May 2011. The choice to pursue a career in physical therapy stemmed from volleyball-related injuries while playing at both Presentation Academy and Bellarmine University. However, during her studies at Bellarmine she was introduced to the specialty area of women’s health/pelvic floor rehab and was intrigued to gain additional knowledge regarding her own personal interest of pelvic pain. She was accepted to participate in a women’s health clinical assignment at the University of Michigan as a portion of her clinical externship requirements. In addition, she has completed various certification courses via the Section on Women’s Health (SOWH) through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) regarding pelvic floor dysfunction and pregnancy. She has also completed additional certification regarding treatment and management of upper extremity lymphedema (CLT-UE) via Klose Training in 2014.
Throughout her years as a practicing physical therapist she has gained exposure to various practice settings of acute, outpatient, and inpatient rehabilitation. In the variety of settings, she gained exposure to multiple patient populations ranging from orthopedic to neurological while continuing to have specialty emphasis of upper extremity lymphedema and pelvic floor treatment of the female and male populations, with specific interest in pelvic pain. Linsey makes it a personal goal that every patient feels confident and comfortable to express their concerns, symptoms, and goals. “I think pelvic floor diagnoses and symptoms should not be treated as taboo discussion. It is another area of the body that is just as deserving for treatment, no matter its location on the body.”
Linsey is currently licensed in Kentucky and Indiana. She maintains memberships of the following organizations: American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Section on Women’s Health, Kentucky Physical Therapy Association (KPTA), as well as holding a prior role of secretary on the Southeast District INAPTA board.
Linsey resides in the southend of Louisville with her husband and high school sweetheart Zach and their son Paxton. In her spare time she loves to spend time with family, play volleyball, shop, and enjoy the up-and-coming restaurants in Kentuckiana.
