Jillian Balog, PTA
Jillian earned her Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Union County College after receiving her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from the University of Louisville. She was drawn to Physical Therapy due to her life-long participation in sports and exercise. During her clinical affiliations, Jillian had the opportunity to work with orthopedic, athletic, pediatric, and neurological patient populations.
While completing her undergraduate education, Jillian served as a student-athlete of the Division 1 Lacrosse Team at Louisville. Being surrounded by student-athletes experiencing season-ending injuries, her passion to work in the Physical Therapy field continued to grow. Jillian is committed to prioritizing her patients’ goals for them to return to their highest level of function and getting back to what they love most.
Jillian is originally from central New Jersey and has recently relocated to the Jersey Shore. She moved to New York City to pursue her career as a physical therapist assistant. In her spare time, Jillian enjoys spending time with her friends and family, exploring new places to eat, relaxing on the beach, traveling, going to sporting events, and exercising.
