Theresa earned her bachelors in Health Science and Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from Nazareth College of Rochester, NY. After working at Massachusetts General Hospital on the neurologic physical therapy team, she traveled coast to coast to attend the Kaiser Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program in Redwood City, CA. After graduation from the program, she took her neurologic board certification, becoming certified as a Neurologic Clinical Specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. She also has created an online continuing education course approved by the California Board of Physical Therapy to help physical therapists integrate neurologic rehabilitation approaches into caring for people with Parkinsonís disease. She is an LSVT BIG trained clinician.
Theresa is thrilled to be working at The Parkinsonís Institute as its physical therapist. As a clinician, she uses neuroplastic approaches to rehabilitation based on the latest evidence. She also has an interest in community outreach and hopes to be able to emphasize the importance of exercise to the Parkinsonís disease community. Outside of work, she enjoys reading, swimming, tennis, horseback riding, and crafts.
