Amanda received her B.S in Exercise Science from Georgian Court University. She then went on to earn her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the College of Staten Island where she was recognized for Clinical Excellence in Physical Therapy and Service. Amanda’s passion for orthopedic and sports physical therapy flourished during her graduate studies, leading her to take advanced courses in hip and knee pathologies, ACL rehab/return to sport, and joint replacements.
While undergoing rehabilitation for a running-related injury, Amanda saw firsthand the vital role that physical therapy plays in helping athletes recover and return to sport. It was this experience that sparked her interest in the field of Physical Therapy. An avid runner, Amanda grew up competing in AAU Junior Olympic cross country and track and field events. She received All American accolades in her youth and continued to compete throughout high school and college.
Amanda’s clinical interests are diverse and vary from treating sport specific injuries to pediatric patients to neurological disorders. She enjoys treating young athlete patients with orthopedic issues as well as infants with torticollis. She works with fellow runners of all skill levels to create individualized treatment plans designed to help them achieve peak performance—incorporating a variety of treatment techniques including rocktape and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). Amanda is an LSVT BIG certified clinician—a treatment protocol shown to improve movement and function in Parkinson’s patients. She also has advanced training in industrial rehabilitation and performs Functional Capacity Evaluations.
In her free time, Amanda enjoys spending time at the Jersey Shore, running road races with her family, and taking Orange Theory and spin classes.
