Barbara Gordon, PTA
Physical Therapist Assistant

Barb is a sports enthusiast, a lover of life and well-being who believes in moderate, everyday activity as an opportunity for a healthy existence.  Growing up in San Diego, Barb was one of five girls playing ice hockey in California. Barb was an active member in many sports including soccer, softball, basketball, figure skating, lacrosse, and dance. Barb became so involved with ice hockey that she found her way to the East Coast playing at Colby College where her number is now retired. As a selection for the US Women's National Ice Hockey Team, Barb spent her post college career competing and training internationally with Olympic athletes.
On her journey to Physical Therapy, she was in a bicycle accident that allowed her the opportunity to appreciate the importance of rehabilitation for sustaining quality of life. She learned to work within her physical limitations and focused on understanding her body in a less impactful, more restorative way.  After years of working in the sportswear industry, Barb changed her focus to where her passion lies, and is a graduate of the Lane Community College PTA program. She enjoys working with a wide variety of people, and is committed to helping find a routine that works for each patient. Her interests are in manual therapy techniques as well as core and postural conditioning.
Barb still plays ice hockey, softball, practices yoga, and always enjoys a good "work out". She also has fun doing outdoor activities with her family and dog such as hiking, agility training, and "chuck it" at the park.


Greg Klein, PTA
Physical Therapist Assistant

Greg graduated from the Physical Therapy Assistant Program at Mt. Hood Community College in 2009. Since then he has practiced in both inpatient hospital care and outpatient orthopedics while living in Corvallis. In September of 2014, he moved back to Portland and joined the team at Cascade 205. 
A former field biologist and environmental consultant, Greg came to Physical Therapy later in life pursuing an interest in the mechanics of the human body and a desire to work with people. Outside of work, he spends a fair amount of time exploring the outdoors via mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, and skiing. In 1989, he took his first yoga class for college credit and has kept up the practice over the years, which has included teaching introductory yoga classes for at-risk youth.  He also likes to stay in tune with his lifelong love of music by playing bass in a music ensemble that explores various music styles from South America. “Playing an instrument has actually been instructive for my career in Physical Therapy. Musicians have an uphill battle against the adverse effects from repetitive strain and prolonged postures. So it’s great to be in a field that can help.”
