Lynette Uetz


What do you really do at work?
As the Executive Director for the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy I work to support the board of directors, and the organization’s strategic initiatives. This includes program & event planning, budgeting/financial management, managing internal business operations and governance. Or you could say I juggle – many balls in the air.  And every day I learn something new!

Describe your Perfect Day.
Wake up in Italy!  Beyond that, getting outside in nature with my camera. Exploring new places and cuisine.

What’s your Superpower?
Planner:  I love ideas.  But in particular, I love to make ideas happen.

What’s your life motto?
There is always a reason to be grateful.

What inspires you?
Meaning and purpose in work are important to me. I am inspired working with committed and passionate colleagues and leaders in the health industry. Together we work to move the industry forward and ultimately improve care and treatment for patients. It’s awesome!
