About Dr. Brent
Someone once told me…
“Do what you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”
Here's a brief list of things I love to get to know me better. I love helping people, I love problem-solving, I love anatomy, I love learning and empowering people through education, I love cooking, I love cholocate, I love my wife, I love God, as well as exercise and nature.
In hearing this quote I easily realized physical therapy is everything I love and more. I can truly say physical therapy is my passion because of the immense satisfaction I get from helping others.
Early on in my physical therapy career, I developed a passion for outpatient manual physical therapy. After practicing multiple years and managing a small orthopedic clinic, something was still missing. I felt limited in my patient care by the traditional physical therapy model. I realized insurance companies were starting to dictating how I treated, how many visits the patient received, for how long, and what I got paid for my services. I knew a change needed to happen in order to cater to my client's needs and not insurance companies. So we began the endeavor to start our own cash-based clinic in Sarasota to give our clients the time, resources, and individualized care they truly need to restore their lives.
This is why we started Yoder Physical Therapy & Wellness!
I just want to say I'm here for you and there is no better time to invest in yourself than now!
About Dr. Anjelica
In physical therapy school, there might have only been one lecture about Women’s Health. I didn’t even know pelvic floor physical therapy was a thing.
It wasn’t until my sister-in-law, who now has four gorgeous kids, shared with me about how her postpartum journey started off very wrong than completely changed when she started addressing her pelvic floor and core.
Her story goes like this..
“In my first pregnancy, no one told me about pelvic floor rehabilitation, not even the doctor. The only instruction from the doctor at my 6-week visit was ‘Don’t do anything until I clear you. Once I clear you, you can do everything.’ So after I was cleared, I jumped right back into surfing and capoeira. I quickly pulled some muscles and started dealing with a lot of aches and pains. I also thought back pain was normal, even into a year postpartum (Hint: This is NOT normal at any point postpartum. It may be common but not normal!)
It wasn’t until my best friend told me about pelvic floor physical therapy that I finally gave my body the attention that it needed and went back to doing what I love in a smarter way and with a lot more knowledge about my body.”
I hear similar stories from soo many moms.
Because of my sister-in-law’s story, I decided to pursue my career in pelvic floor, pregnancy, and postpartum therapy. I absolutely love working with this population!

In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, biking, surfing, working out, walking the Ringling bridge, and seeing the beach sunset.
