DPT (Doctorate of Physical Therapy)
A Doctor of Physical Therapy, Stephanie is a pediatric physical therapist who joined the FOCUS Therapy team in September of 2017. Having earned her doctorate degree from Slippery Rock University, Pennsylvania, it was while interning in the NICU, in a hospital in Miami, where she found her passion for pediatrics and love for Florida. She particularly loves the family environment of FOCUS, where everyone works together as a team to help each other achieve the highest level of success for each child. She focuses on developing fun, creative strategies for each child in every session.
Although from northwest Pennsylvania, Stephanie is a no stranger to the warm weather — much of her spare time is spent enjoying the outdoors catching rays on the beach. When she’s not in the office, you can find Stephanie looking for adventure, from scoring a style inspiration at local boutiques to seeking out the tastiest donuts and treats in South Florida!
Stephanie is an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Florida Physical Therapy Association (FPTA). She continues to expand her knowledge in the world of pediatric physical therapy by attending meetings and education courses to apply to her patients.
At FOCUS, Stephanie works with patients on many variables, from developmental delay, neuromuscular disorders to various musculoskeletal conditions. You can expect to find Stephanie working alongside her patients, welcoming fun while working toward progress!
