Ronni McLaughlin

Director of Front Office Administration @AvantPT

Ronni graduated from the University of Washington in 2014 with a Bachelors in Aquatic and Fisheries Science. She began her career working with animals, eventually transitioning into clinic management before making the leap to administration in physical therapy. She enjoys learning about each patient and pairing them with the perfect therapist to aid in their recovery. She’s also our resident insurance expert, so if you have a question she’ll do her best to track down the answer for you! Having gone through the full PT experience herself, she can also prep you for what to expect in terms of process and outcomes in PT.

When not in the clinic Ronni can usually be found riding her horse Pantero, backpacking in the mountains with her fiance Mason and their dog Olive, or sampling a good local beer. She usually has an interesting fact about marine biology handy, so feel free to ask!

Happy Patients

Seriously so grateful for Ronni. She knows our patients' needs and schedules like the back of her hand and works incredibly hard to make sure every single patient gets in when they need to. She's also a wizard helping people understand and communicate with their insurance companies. Ronni makes everyone's day easier and more fun.


Ronni is a superstar. She definitely keeps the clinic running smoothly and helps with much of the 'behind the scenes work'. She is always willing to help and does so with a smile! She is definitely a tremendous asset to the clinic, and we are so grateful to have her here!


Ronni makes a seamless transition for each patient from their first phone call to graduation ceremony in PT. She leads our Front Office and team with a calm demeanor, can-do attitude, and willingness to tackle any issue that comes her way. Our patients and staff are so lucky to have her as the first touch point at Avant PT.


Ronni glues this team together and makes sure that there is never so much as a glitch, hiccup, or yawn in communication.  A person’s interaction with front office administration sets the tone for the rest of their experience with the clinic, and I feel so fortunate to have a solid member of our team.  She is also a killer horseback rider!
