Anna received her Physical Therapy Degree from Daemen College in Buffalo, New York. Being a competitive swimmer while growing up, she took an interest in sports and rehabilitation early which led her to a career in Physical Therapy. After graduating college, she began her professional career in New York City, working in an outpatient orthopedic clinic with emphasis on sports rehabilitation. Her experience there enabled her to advance clinically and professionally.
Anna developed a particular interest in rehabilitation following ACL repair and injury prevention. While in NYC, she worked with school-age soccer players, recreational adult soccer and rugby teams. Anna enjoys teaching physical therapy students as a part of her clinical experience and is an APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor. After moving to New Jersey and choosing EXCEL, Anna continues to hone her skills and interest in orthopedic rehabilitation.
Outside of the clinic, Anna enjoys traveling around the country, Europe, and Central America. She enjoys adventure trips, while experiencing local cuisine and wines, and beach vacations, as well as just enjoying family time in upstate New York. New York City continues to be the place where she spends most of her time, enjoying new restaurants, concerts and sightseeing.

Congratulations to our new (and re-credentialed) Advanced Hip Clinicians! In order to be designated as an Advanced Hip Clinician, physical therapists (PTs) must attend the course, finish required and optional readings, and pass a post-course exam. These PTs demonstrate a passion for caring for all conditions of the hip coupled with a high degree of clinical knowledge and skill. #excelptnj #keepyoumovingforward #physicaltherapy
