Rachelle ‘Shellie’ Jenkins, PT, MSPT
Physical Therapy Supervisor – Eliot
Shellie is an experienced therapist and excited to join the Reform Physical Therapy team in 2022! She graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, MA with her Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Science and Master of Science in Physical Therapy over 15 years ago. Since earning her degrees, she has worked in a variety of settings to provide quality care, but is most passionate about assisting people to return to their previous activities and quality of life in an outpatient setting.
As an active person, Shellie understands how frustrating it is to have to sit on the sidelines from the sport or activity you love due to injury as well as having to struggle through your daily routine due to pain or weakness. She has completed numerous continuing education courses focusing on targeted manual techniques to provide pain relief, restore joint mobility, impact soft tissue quality, and improve pelvic alignment. Other courses have focused on advancement of therapeutic exercises to challenge any person in need, from beginner to the most competitive athlete.
Shellie understands that life is busy and prides herself on helping her patients streamline which components of care are the most important to target depending on the current situation, injury, or ailment. She enjoys the one-on-one time she gets to spend with each patient during every visit to Reform PT and takes the time to truly hear and understand how each individual’s situation is unique and impacting their life. Then, she works with each patient and any other involved providers to create a solution and develop a treatment plan to address the individual’s needs and goals.
When she is not working, Shellie can be found enjoying the outdoors with her husband and two young children in Southern Maine.

I’ve been going to Reform Therapy for a few weeks and have always been met with kindness and smiles from the moment I walk in. Kelly makes the payment end and scheduling so easy and Shellie has made my body feel so much stronger. Each time, I leave feeling so much better than when I entered and my progress throughout this past month has made my life filled with so much less pain. I highly recommend!A. Moore, Google Review
