Elizabeth Gugliotti has joined the Tidewater Physical Therapy corporate team as the marketing and community outreach coordinator for its clinics in Hampton and Newport News, as well as the company’s Tidewater Performance Division, which includes centers in Newport News, Suffolk and Gloucester.



“Tidewater Physical Therapy and Tidewater Performance are growing steadily,” said Paula Lumsden, the company’s director of marketing and communications. “Expanding our team to include Elizabeth allows us better interaction out in the community, directly with consumers, with physicians, and athletes.”

Gugliotti, originally from Connecticut, played collegiate soccer while earning her undergraduate degree in sports management with a minor in marketing from Old Dominion University.

“Playing soccer in college was by far one of the most amazing experiences I have had in my life,” she said in a press release announcing her appointment. “Although challenging, it has shaped where I am today and the road that I have taken. I continue to coach soccer, and in my career I have stayed in the sports performance field.”

After graduation in 2005, she worked in the Tidewater area before returning to the Northeast for nearly a decade.

As a community outreach coordinator for Tidewater Physical Therapy, Gugliotti is focusing on building relationships in the community.

“It’s all about relationships, whether you are looking for a physical therapist or a personal trainer,” Gugliotti said. “You want to go to someone you can trust, someone you know is dedicated to excellence in the clinic and safety in the performance center.”

Tidewater Physical Therapy is an independent practice owned by four physical therapists. Its more than 30 physical therapy clinics are located across Southeast and Central Virginia, from Virginia Beach to Richmond and all points in between. In 2011, it launched its Tidewater Performance Center with a location in Newport News. By 2014, the division expanded to include three centers.
