Rebecca Fletcher, PT, DPT

Neurologic Physical Therapy Resident

About: Rebecca was born and raised in Houston, Texas and attended Texas A&M University (Whoop!!) for her undergraduate studies. At Texas A&M, Rebecca competed as a member of the cross country and track team which led to her interest in learning about the human body and its tremendous abilities. Rebecca’s growing passion, and personal experiences led her to attend the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston where she received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

Prior to DPT school, Rebecca’s interests were mainly in sports medicine, and orthopedic interventions for individuals suffering an injury due to their sport. However, during her coursework and initial clinical experiences, Rebecca was introduced to the world of neurological physical therapy and was unable to ignore the draw it had on her. She saw the power behind the patients, their stories, and the great privilege it is to work with individuals with neurological conditions. Her continued volunteer experiences at a local pro bono clinic and third clinical experience at the Spinal Cord Injury unit at Michael DeBakey VA Hospital continued to solidify her desire to work with both underserved individuals and those with neurological injuries. Rebecca was drawn to the Harris Health Neurological Residency Program due to the strong sense of community, high value for service, and shared commitment to excellence for all patients they work with.

Rebecca is honored to be working in Houston, specifically to be back in Harris County where she grew up. Houston is home for her, and she is grateful for the experiences it has given her, and to give back to its residents. Following residency, Rebecca seeks to become a Board-Certified Neurologic Physical Therapy Specialist. Above all, Rebecca aims to be a physical therapist that treats all individuals with unwavering excellence, genuine compassion, and desires to advocate for the health and wellbeing of each patient she interacts with. She hopes to combine her knowledge, and empathy to improve her patients’ quality of life, increase overall function, and empower individuals in their abilities. When she is not working with patients, Rebecca enjoys running with friends, playing board games with her husband, walking in her neighborhood or at the beach, and relaxing with family. Much of her time is also invested in discovering the best food in town and consuming all the chai or boba tea she can.

Shanaj Alam, PT, DPT

About: Shahnaj, also known as Ambi, was born and raised in the Houston area suburbs. Since high school she has been drawn to rehabilitation as a student athletic trainer. While she loves supporting her favorite sports teams, she knew she did not want to be limited to only helping athletes. She found herself following a path towards physical therapy to pursue this interest and ultimately chose to share her passion for populations with neurologic diagnoses, amputations, and prosthetics. Ambi committed to her love for Houston by attending the University of Houston and working as a rehabilitation technician in League City and Webster – before branching out to San Antonio. University of the Incarnate Word School of Physical Therapy allowed her to further identify a love for amputation/prosthetics and neurologic populations while providing compassionate, empathetic, and holistic care to underserved communities. She has also pursued both physical therapy-related and non-physical therapy volunteer opportunities to give back to those in need in Houston and San Antonio. Ambi also took on leadership opportunities including Class Secretary of her DPT program and worked at her school’s library to aid her fellow students.

Ambi was interested in Harris Health’s neurologic PT residency early on, as she was eager to bring her training back to Houston and further her skills in a neurologic specialty. As a student, she had the opportunity to complete her last clinical rotation at Fournace Place, where she was able to meet patients, faculty, and former/current residents – giving her confidence in an environment and culture that would promote growth and application of her beliefs and values to those at Harris County. After graduating, Ambi worked as a physical therapist for in-patient rehab and looks forward to returning to Harris Health for the start of her residency. Outside of work, you can find her outdoors, enjoying nature, and supporting sports teams. She is also a fan of watching/reading Star Wars, Marvel, and “spooky” genres

Morgan Glick

Hometown: Boerne, TX

About: Morgan was born and raised in Boerne, Texas before moving to east Texas to play soccer at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches. After undergrad, she went to Iceland to play a season at the professional level before continuing her education at Texas A&M, earning her Master’s in Clinical Exercise Physiology. She worked as an exercise physiologist with patients with cardiac and pulmonary conditions for a couple of years, where she realized her true passion was in physical therapy.

Morgan has always lived and enjoyed an active lifestyle, embracing the philosophy of exercise as medicine. As she worked with more and more patients, she saw the need for helping people with various injuries optimize the way they moved to not only improve their physical health, but to be able to do the things they loved and increase their quality of life. Morgan’s mom had lived with paraplegia following a spinal cord injury since before she was born, and when Morgan decided to earn her Doctor of Physical Therapy, she knew she wanted to help people like her mom who had suffered life changing neurological injuries.

Throughout her time as a DPT student at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, her passion for serving the underserved was deepened through the culture of service there that fostered a multitude of volunteer and pro bono opportunities in the community. As PT school went on, Morgan knew she wanted to find a position after school that would allow her to serve the community and the neurologic patient population, all while becoming the best provider she could be, making the Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency at Harris Health the perfect fit for her goals.
