Lia Buzzell



Lia graduated from A. T. Still University in Mesa, AZ. She has always had an interest in working in an outpatient orthopedic setting as she enjoys helping individuals overcome functional deficits, optimizing movement, and promoting a healthy lifestyle. She strives to incorporate holistic, quality patient care with all of her patients. Lia completed one of her clinical rotations with Axis in 2020 and is excited to return to the Axis team as a physical therapist. In her spare time, Lia enjoys bouldering, slacklining, and being outside with friends and family.
