As a former scholar/athlete, Dr. Frye played lots of sports growing up: softball, volleyball, basketball, crew. She won all-state honors in softball twice during high school. So she can relate to year-round sports and the drive for excellence and can help young athletes with their sports-specific injuries.
She still enjoys sports and many outdoor activities and makes the most of her free time by spending it with her husband and their two children and three dogs - and, yes, they live a very active lifestyle.
