Jasmine Smith, co-founder of Healing Hands Rehabilitation Services, has known she wanted to be a physical therapist since she was 10 years old, after observing sessions her grandfather had to take after having a stroke, as well as later sessions she observed when her parents had to undergo PT.

A Jacksonian by birth, Smith graduated from Callaway High School and earned her physical-therapy credentials through degrees obtained from Mississippi State University and UMMC.

She worked in physical therapy for several years before a family member encouraged her to open her own private practice in Jackson in 2016 alongside Brittany Flaggs.

“I have never wanted to leave Jackson, or Mississippi for that matter. I was born and raised here. Jackson’s been good to me. Mississippi has been good to me. I wanted to return the favor by staying and playing a part in helping Mississippi be all that it could be,” Smith says. “With the brain drain, where professionals are trained and then take their talents elsewhere, I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to contribute to my state, to my city, and stay here and try to do great things here.”

She is married to Robert Smith III and has two children, Robert Smith IV and Rylee. —Nate Schumann
