Holly Petersen, PT, DPT

Healthcare Consultant & Coach

Holly Petersen, PT, DPT, is the former Director of Operational Excellence and Compliance for the largest provider of physical therapy and chiropractic services in the northeast. During her time at Cypress Health Partners, she identified the opportunity to optimize operations by creating systems and support for clinicians and administrators. 


With her visionary leadership, she created her own department and grew it to a team of five professionals who were responsible for systems creation, implementation, and modification for multisite compliance, new hire clinician and administrator training, merger and acquisition due diligence, and post-acquisition integration. The team was also responsible for collaboration with the marketing department on the rollout of the company-wide Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool and NPS rollouts. 


Despite her successful career, in May 2021, Holly realized that her true passion lay in helping private practice owners build and maintain efficient and effective operations, and she made the bold decision to leave her corporate job and strike out on her own, starting Petersen Coaching & Consu​lting. 

Holly attended Nazareth College in Rochester, NY where she earned her Bachelor of Health Science and then went on to earn her Doctor of Physical Therapy. When she is not working with practice owners on delivering quality care while creating and maintaining a foundation that supports their business, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. She is also an avid cyclist who annually rides hundreds of miles to support the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC), a charity that raises money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA.
