Jessica earned her Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy from Hunter College. Prior to completing her doctoral training, Jessica worked at ProMet as a Physical Therapy Tech, making her one of the original ProMet team members. Among many roles, Jessica leads our student internship team and is Center Coordinator for Clinical Education (CCCE).

Before returning to the team at ProMet, Jessica worked at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas. During her two years there, Jessica worked with children from birth through age 21 with a wide variety of neurologic, orthopedic, and genetic conditions. She was a member of the Pain Team, where she treated children with debilitating chronic pain conditions and assisted them in returning to age appropriate activities. She was also a member of the Limb Reconstruction Clinic, a multidisciplinary team that treats children with surgically corrected congenital or acquired limb length differences. These experiences make Jessica uniquely qualified to evaluate and treat complex diagnoses related to the pediatric patient population.

She celebrates every victory throughout the rehabilitation process and works diligently to assist and inspire patients to achieve their goals. She values creating relationships with her patients and providing high quality, individualized care. She aspires to provide every patient with a positive experience during their time at ProMet.
