Amanda, who graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from Sacred Heart University, joined Connecticut Family Physical Therapy in early 2015. She is one of only 174 Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialists (OCS) in Connecticut and is also a Graston technique provider. Throughout her career, Amanda has worked extensively with both orthopedic and sports injuries. She has spent a majority of the focus of her post graduate education on enriching her Manual Therapy skills, taking advanced course work through North American Institute of Manual Therapy, Maitland, Kevin Wilk, and Hospital for Special Surgery.
While in college, Amanda played Division 1 field hockey for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) and has remained active in the sport by both playing and coaching youth teams. A triathlete and half marathon runner, Amanda spends her free time training and competing in CrossFit in addition to teaching aerobics and spin classes. She loves when her job allows her patients to return to what it is they are passionate about; it is the reason she became a physical therapist!
