Our Late Founder, Sandy McCloskey, PT, HPCS:
Sandy, President and Founder of Quest Therapeutic Services, was a talented physical therapist with over 24 years of experience. Sandy was a rider herself, and succeeded in blending her love for horses with her career as a pediatric physical therapist. Her passion to contribute to the professional therapy community is reflected in Quest’s commitment to research and education. Providing a holistic, family-oriented approach to therapy is also a core value reflected in all of Quest’s programs. When Sandy passed away in January of 2016, her loss was felt through out the community and Quest. Her legacy lives on through the many children we serve and the powerful organization she helped build.
