Growing up I was always fascinated with anatomy and biomechanics and their application to athletics and training. I also love working
and interacting with people so the synergy of these things naturally led to the study of physical therapy. My undergraduate study in
Athletic Training prepared me to work with an active and athletically demanding population. I have found that the challenge of treating
high level athletes with very specific needs and demands has helped me develop critical thinking skills that have allowed me to
succeed in treating all types of individuals, from weekend warriors training for the next Ironman to nonagenarians looking to get around
the block again.

Upon initially graduating college, Julie was working in a sales office and although she enjoyed the customer service aspect, she knew she wanted to do something more active and fulfilling. She had attended trade shows and met many physical therapists over the next few years and was intrigued at their love for the profession. So the decision was made to return to school for physical therapy and she never looked back. After starting her PT career at Hackensack University Medical Center, which was invaluable training for acute care and trauma situations, she knew she wanted to transition to outpatient orthopedic physical therapy. Her love of working out, hiking, golfing, jogging and softball all lead her to want to help others get back to the activities that they each enjoy.
Over the years, Julie has worked at several different orthopedic locations and has trained in various methods including instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, trigger point dry needling, Mulligan techniques, and many other various hands on and exercise based courses.
She set her goals to include becoming a Board Certified Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy in 2005, then returning to school to obtain her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2007. She then passed her recertification for her Board Certification in 2015.
She believes that helping patients understand their diagnosis in clear, concise terms then developing a plan that includes a blend of education, hands on techniques, targeted exercises, and a home program will empower patients to achieve their goals.
Julie recently joined Professional Physical Therapy and is finding likeminded therapists who work as a team to give patients optimal care.
