Codie Li

Happiness & Wellness Event Coordinator

Marketing & Media Manager

Codie Li received her bachelor's degree in Biology with a minor in communication from Hamilton College. Prior to joining the Defy Family, she was an assistant account executive at The Dana Agency Public Relations in Miami where her focus was social media development and events planning. While she enjoyed the fun and dynamic lifestyle of a publicist, she always had a passion for health and wellness. Combining her interest and her desire to help others, she explored the field of physical therapy. After shadowing several physical therapists at different clinics throughout Miami, including Defy Therapy & Wellness, and recognizing the impact this field has on both the physical and mental wellbeing of individuals, she decided to pursue a career as a physical therapist and is currently studying at FIU’s DPT program. Codie officially joined the Defy Family to manage our social media accounts, conduct marketing outreach and coordinate events as we continue our mission to help people defy the odds through knowledge about therapy.

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Miami, Codie enjoys immersing herself in different cultures through traveling. Of all the places she visited, Japan is her favorite destination and she looks forward to taking many more trips to the beautiful country. In addition to learning about a culture’s history and enjoying the country’s natural beauty, she loves tasting new and unique types of food. You can find her trying the latest and trendiest restaurants around town.

Tara is the most amazing physical therapist I've seen. I've been playing soccer my whole life and her input has greatly increased my performance and allowed me to recover from serious injuries to my ankles and groin. Thank you so much for all you have done for me Tara! Your work directly helps me and my team to fight human trafficking through soccer! 🔥⚽❌
