The Team

Shannon Glass-Smythe owner of Alta Performance

Shannon Glass-Smythe


A longtime lover of health and fitness, Shannon is a Licensed Physical Therapist and the Owner + Founder of Alta. After becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Boston University, Shannon pursued a career in Orthopedics. While she gained so much from the experience, she was missing the sports component of physical therapy. Knowing that physical therapy, sports, and strength and conditioning are intertwined, she set out to find a multidisciplinary clinic to work at, but couldn’t find anything like it. So, she created it! Shannon founded Alta with the intention of creating a sports performance facility that allows youth athletes and adults to aim high, work hard, and hone their skills so they can get where they want to be.
