Over the past few years, she has secured partnerships with several wellness and exercise facilities as well as corporate entities in the New York City area, giving lectures, providing consultations, and advising their clients.
Kelly’s passion and curiosity for physical therapy can be traced back to her childhood when she suffered several injuries in her years as a competitive dancer. This combined with her natural instinct as a people person and her passion for helping others is what ultimately led her to a career in physical therapy.
Her excitement for the profession has only grown as she has watched numerous patients benefit and achieve their maximum potential with her assistance. Kelly’s unique approach to patient-care stems from her pride in holistic and personalized treatment while focusing on each individual she has the pleasure of working with.
Kelly enjoys taking Pilates classes in her downtime and incorporates these exercises with her patients as she feels Pilates is safe and effective for injury prevention and recovery. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends and going to the beach.
