Cindy Lawton of Los Alamos sold her half ownership in Rebound Physical Therapy Dec. 22 to Andy and Sarah Thien.

Lawton’s longtime partner Michelle Harris retains her half ownership in the business.

Harris and Lawton incorporated Rebound Physical Therapy in October 2002 and opened for business at 4717 Quemazon in March 2004.

“I have been a physical therapist for 31 years,” Lawton said. “Sarah Thien moved to town in 2005 and interviewed for a job. I intimidated her just a bit but we were lucky that I didn’t scare her off. She was the best thing that ever happened to Rebound and 10 years later she chose to purchase my half of the company.”

Lawton describes Thien and Harris as “excellent therapists”.

“There isn’t a doubt in my mind the company will continue with the same success the last decade has brought,” Lawton said, adding, “I am truly thankful for all the support the community, both physicians and patients, has given the clinic.”

What’s next for Lawton? She plans to continue her job in the ergonomics department at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“I really enjoy working on preventing injuries,” she said. “I specialize in glovebox ergonomics and ADPSM has provided an environment to allow me to truly be successful in improving the safety of the workers. This community, both at Rebound and at LANL, has been good to me and I feel so fortunate to have employment where I can make a difference and enjoy getting up to go to work every day.”

Lawton’s daughter Jenny Tumas sent her mother a letter congratulating her on her accomplishments and expressing excitement for her future.

“I am so proud of you for everything you did at Rebound, and I am excited for you to start the next chapter of your life,” Tumas said. “Your work at Rebound taught Keyla and me so much about working hard, being honest, being kind, and seeing things through. I am beyond impressed by everything you accomplished. More than that, through Rebound you have trained so many students and adults and taught them how to be better workers, communicators, and colleagues. For everything, congratulations! I am proud of you and honored to call you my mama…”
