Angelia (Ang) Jones PT, DPT, Physical Therapist

I am originally from Panama City Beach, FL. I lived there for 18 years before moving to Tallahassee to go to Florida State University for undergrad (Go Noles!) where I received a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and a Minor in Psychology in 2013. I moved back to Panama City Beach after undergrad where I then worked at Hombre Golf Course while I attended Physical Therapist Assistant school at Gulf Coast State College. I finished PTA school in 2017 and quickly relocated to Jacksonville, FL where I was hired at Southeast Orthopedic Specialists. I then decided to pursue my Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2019 at the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences and graduated in 2021. I recently got married to my husband in 2021 and we have a fur baby named Murphy! I was previously a PTA, where I worked in an outpatient orthopedic clinic and gained a lot of exposure to post operative rehabilitation. I have done clinical rotations through my DPT schooling that focused on vestibular issues and various neurological issues. A jack-of-all trades if you will!

My values are Courage, patience, compassion, and listening.

“You’ve made it through 100% of your bad days.” “You don’t have to, you get to!”

I am a Physical Therapy Clinician at Direct Orthopedic Therapy and I help people improve their quality of life! One of the things I love the most is helping people who don’t know how to reach their goals.

I love working at Direct Orthopedic Therapy because of the FLEXIBILITY!! One-on-one time spent with patients, the patients themselves, and the staff.

What is Angelia’s favorite guilty pleasure?


In my off time I love trying new restaurants, working out, taking the dog on a walk, or relaxing by the pool with a fun cocktail! I also love a good, 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
