Thankful for therapists
We have an amazing team of occupational and physical therapists at Aegis Therapies®, and we are thankful for all of them!
Christopher De Jesus, PT, DPT, has been working with Aegis Therapies since 2016 and joined the Manor of the Plains team in September 2021. He is a certified LSVT BIG provider, practitioner of Total Motion Release (TMR) and Dophin Micropoint Stimulation.
“I am married to a Filipina nurse who is currently working at Wesley Medical Center, and God provided us with three excellent/beautiful kids (one engineer, one computer tech, and the youngest is currently pursuing her dream to become a PT like me),” Christopher said. “I love travelling, I love camping, I love sports (bowling, basketball, chess, martial arts), I love education!”
Kathy Fenton-Glover has been an occupational therapist in the Manor of the Plains community for over three years. She began her health care experience in her teenage years working as a volunteer at the local nursing home. Kathy moved up to kitchen aide and nurse’s aide. It was during this time that she attended a workshop for activity directors given by an occupational therapist. Soon after, she was on the path to completing the educational training to become an occupational therapist. Kathy enjoys working with residents and helping them regain a higher level of independence. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and baking.
Darrell Roths, Jr., CPTA, joined the Aegis Therapies team in June 2021. His previous work involved starting Phillips Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Center with Dr. Jammie Phillips. The two opened the only chiropractic/physical therapy office in western Kansas.
“I am a single father of two boys ages 19 and 9,” Darrell said. “I enjoy working at Boot Hill Casino part-time as a dealer for table games. I also enjoy sports and family time at the lake.”
Julie Winkel, CPTA, isn’t new to the Aegis Therapies team. She’s been part of the staff since 1996, when she joined as staff therapist. After 10 years in that role, she was a rehab coordinator for two years and then team lead for eight years. She is currently director of rehab, a title she’s had since 2016.
“My husband John and I have a farm in north central Kansas,” Julie said. “We have seven children and 14 grandchildren. We enjoy spending time with the grandchildren and sporting activities.”
