Kevin Schmidt – PT, MSPT, Pedal PT

Following an untimely dislocation/fracture of his elbow during a high school basketball game, Kevin experienced Physical Therapy first hand, and after a full recovery, was immediately sold on the career path.  Kevin went on to receive his Masters of Science in Physical Therapy (MSPT) degree from Grand Valley State University (Michigan) before promptly moving to Portland in 2002.

As someone who has experienced numerous cycling-related pains himself, Kevin’s interest in complex cycling injury and bike fitting concepts prompted him to take extensive continuing education in becoming the very first certified Bike PT in Portland, OR.  He founded Pedal PT in August of 2012.

Kevin strives to promote the benefits of Physical Therapy while leading an active, ‘car-less’ lifestyle throughout Portland, and has been featured in BICYCLING MagazinePortland Monthly Magazine, DETAILS Magazine, Bicycle Transportation Alliance,, and Portland Pedal Power, and was an invited speaker at the 2017 American Physical Therapy Association’s national conference.

Outside of the office, Kevin enjoys spending time reading and learning new things, riding his bike, playing guitar, surfing, and spending time with his wife and two kids, ages 15 and 13.

He is also an enthusiastic supporter of the role of the Physiotherapist in managing cyclists and Bike Fit, and recently created an educational course for PTs to learn about Bike Fit and working with cyclists: The Pedal PT Online Academy!

Nicole D’Amato – Client Experience Coordinator

Nicole is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Immediately after graduating college and being bit by the travel bug, she migrated north to Denali National Park, Alaska for the summer. What was supposed to be one fun summer, turned in to a seasonal lifestyle. For almost ten years, she spent half her time in Portland and the other half in Alaska. Now she has settled full time in Portland as the Client Experience Coordinator at Pedal PT and enjoys participating and working amongst the vibrant cyclist community that is so prevalent here.

At the office, Nicole enjoys greeting and getting to know the variety of patients that are seen at Pedal PT. On her off time, she enjoys biking, cooking, hanging with her cat, Stevens, dancing, catching up with friends, enjoying live music, and of course making her way through all the deliciousness a culinary city like Portland has to offer.
