Ed Grey — Exposure to the physical therapy clinics he worked with was the impetus for Ed’s pursuit of a career in physical and occupational therapy. Graduating summa cum laude with an Associate Degree in Physical Therapy from Lynn University was followed by a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Barry University. After 12 years of successfully treating neurological and other disorders as a Physical Therapist and an Occupational Therapist, Ed and his wife, Jodi, opened Avenue Therapy and Wellness, Inc. in Boynton Beach.

Ed has become a nationally recognized lecturer and noted expert in the field of movement disorders. In the past year and a half he has been speaking throughout South Florida on Medicinal Marijuana and CBD Oils.
