Peyton Whatley, PTA

Peyton is from Benton, LA. She began her PTA career in 2021 after graduating from the Physical Therapist Assistance program at Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC). Peyton has been around sports since middle school and loved the process of getting athletes back to playing the sport they loved as she was a student athletic trainer. It wasn't until the summer of 2018 when she had a personal encounter with the therapy world by seeing the process of the therapists helping her grandpa get back to walking and getting him stronger in order to go home to his family! "From the moment I saw all the therapists help my grandpa, I knew physical therapy was where I wanted to be"! When Peyton is not at SALT she enjoys spending time with her family and fiancé, Jacob and is excited to marry him in December.

Robyn Slagle, PTA

Robyn Slagle, PTA, began her Physical Therapy journey after graduating from BPCC in 2004. She began working in Southeast Arkansas in the cotton Delta working in a rural hospital setting, working Outpatient, Pediatrics, Geri-psych, and Home Health, with the occasional Wound Care. She then got 'itchy feet' wanting to move around/travel and moved up to Washington State doing primarily Home Health. Which was quite a bit different area culturally, as well as climate, than the South. After working in Washington for 6 years, she moved up to Alaska to be close to her sister and her family, transferring Home Health offices to Anchorage. Despite the beauty of the state and getting to witness the Aurora Borealis, (after her family moved away) Robyn moved back to Washington State. There she worked for one of the local hospitals, getting experience with more Outpatient & Pediatrics, as well as Aquatic therapy (which was fun, especially getting in with the kiddos) and beginning to work with the Pelvic Floor therapists. Then in 2017, life and the Big Man Upstairs said it was time to move back 'home' to Sibley, Louisiana, where she worked in Mansfield & Natchitoches in Outpatient therapy. But after COVID hit, she then worked more Home Health in the rural areas surrounding Shreveport & Bossier. Then in April of 2024, she began her SALT journey. She is very excited to work with those coming here to help them in their path to recovery!

Nia Hill

Nia is a part of our talented social media team. She is from Lafayette, Louisiana but recently just moved back to Louisiana after graduating from college. I graduated from Oklahoma Wesleyan University with her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. She is currently in physical therapy assistant school to become a licensed PTA. She fell in love with the physical therapy environment early on in college while shadowing those in the profession. She enjoys being able to connect with such a variety of individuals on a daily basis. She hopes that one day she can make a difference and be a part of others' success stories. In her free time I enjoy hanging out with her family and friends, playing basketball, or binge-watching tv shows on Netflix.
