The physical therapist assistant is a recent Volunteer State Community College graduate.
"After my graduation in May of this year, I joined the staff shortly thereafter," said Sowder. "Omni came to the school a talk to us about what they had to offer. So I did some research on Omni and found out it would be a golden opportunity to work for them."
Physical and occupational therapy as well as sports medicine, aquatics and women's health are part of the services foundation that Omni offers. They have 15 pieces of Nautilus equipment, a stepper, stationary bicycles, treadmill and elliptical to offer a variety of exercise options. They also have the only Aquatic Therapy Center in the area with a full sized heated indoor pool.
"I talk to some of my therapist friends that I network with and they had nothing but good things to say about Omni," said Sowder. "I heard that those patients that used Omni were pleased with the results, the employees were good to work with and they have stayed with Omni.
"It all sounded like a good chance to work with good people and a good company."
The Omni Center is located at 920 Colloredo Blvd. in Shelbyville and have been in business since 1991.
