Dr. Allie Benkart comes to us from a small coastal town in south shore Massachusetts. Growing up in athletics as a competitive figure skater and hockey player sparked her interest in the body and the healing process. She sustained a low back injury which solidified her future in the art of healing. She became determined to give her patients the same joy that was given her when she could step on the ice again. She worked at Mass General Hospital as a physical therapy aide, which helped her hone her skills as an exercise science specialist.
Dr. Allie Benkart likes to roller/ice skate, go to the beach, play guitar, sing, and hang out with her cat, Zelda. She also loves to explore the Portland foodie scene!
