MEET THE STAFF
ANDREW MIX, MPT, GCS
I am Andrew Mix, a physical therapist at LifeStyles Therapy & Wellness Center. I have appreciated physical therapy since I was a young man growing up in Jerome, where my scoutmaster was a physical therapist and helped me rehabilitate from several sports injuries. After high school, I volunteered and worked in a variety of PT clinics and found that I truly enjoy helping people achieve their wellness goals. I earned a Bachelor of Health Science Studies with a minor in gerontology from Boise State University in 1996 and a Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) from Idaho State University in 1998, at which time I began working in Twin Falls. I was initially employed as a staff therapist and then the lead therapist at Twin Falls Care Center for 2 years, and then as the Rehab Services Manager at BridgeView Estates for 3 years. In 2003, I went to work at Twin Falls Physical Therapy and Wellness Clinic, a private outpatient PT office, and became a partner a year later. In 2006, I qualified as a geriatric clinical specialist (GCS). In 2008, I started LifeStyles Therapy & Wellness Center (when Twin Falls PT was dissolved). I continued to provide physical therapy services in the same location until 2014, at which time I moved to a new, larger location at 276 Eastland Drive North. I am pleased to be a part of a great team, each of us focused on helping people make consistent lifestyle changes that result in lasting wellness. On a personal note, I love spending time with my wife, Lisa, and our children.
KRISTEN TOPLIFF, DPT
I am Kristen Topliff, a physical therapist at LifeStyles Therapy & Wellness Center. I have wanted to be a physical therapist since I was in elementary school when I would watch (and sometimes help!) a home health therapist who would come to the house to work with a friend of the family. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Human and Sport Physiology with a minor in Spanish from Wayne State College in Nebraska and my Doctor of Physical Therapy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Soon after graduating, I took advanced training in Women’s health and Pelvic health PT, which is my particular area of expertise. I enjoy working with people of all ages, genders and conditions, but I am especially proud to offer such specialized treatment related to pelvic health and function. When not at work, I love to spend time with my husband Seth, my children and my two puppy kiddos doing anything outside, especially gardening, camping and fly fishing.
