Cassandra received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Marist College and her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences from Long Island University. During her graduate studies, she was a lab assistant for anatomy as well as a tutor for movement science, neuroscience and anatomy courses.
Cassandra’s clinical experience includes outpatient rehabilitation where she gained knowledge in treating neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, prosthetic training, geriatrics, post-op, and sport injuries. Cassandra plans on obtaining LSVT certification and Mulligan training in order to continue her education in treating neuromuscular disorders and her manual skills. Cassandra’s passion for Physical Therapy came from when she tore her ACL playing soccer when she was 13 years old. From an early age, Cassandra knew she wanted to help others get back to their activities the same way her physical therapist helped her. Cassandra has made it her goal to help her patients by incorporating both a manual and movement approach to her practice.
Cassandra grew up in Queens, NY and has always been into sports. Throughout the years, she played soccer and softball on travel teams as well as on her high school teams. Cassandra has now picked up running and is planning to try a 5k in the upcoming future. She enjoys spending her free time hanging out with friends and family, working out, playing recreational softball, trying different restaurants, and going to concerts.
