Bristol, CT 06010
I am an Exercise Physiologist and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I have a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science from Central Connecticut State University. I have worked over 7 years in physical therapy/hospital settings and have coached elite level gymnasts for 17 years. I have been an instructor with World Instructor Training School (WITS) for over 10 years and currently sit on the WITS board.
My last job was Fitness Director in a rehab hospital with a high number of neurological patients. Several patients approached me asking if I would come to their homes to work with them after their physical therapy was finished. After 4 patients and close to 4 years, I realized that there were not many options for people with disabilities to continue their rehab programs once formal physical therapy was complete. Gym’s were intimidating or inaccessible and Personal Trainers didn’t have the knowledge of how to work with this specialized populations.
I left the hospital and started my own company, Rehab Strong, designing exercise programs for people with disabilities and educational and consulting work with organizations that work with and support these individuals.
