Through the experience of helping many family members with post-surgery recovery, Jodi became interested in physical therapy and the potentially rewarding experience that it can provide a patient. Particularly interesting to Jodi was the integral role that physical therapy practitioners played in helping sick and injured people resume their normal functional lifestyles. Coupled with Jodi’s passion to help others, this experience encouraged her to enroll in the Onondaga Community College’s Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from the PTA program in May 2015, Jodi conducted her final clinical instruction at Cayuga Orthopaedic And Sports Physical Therapy, P.C. (COAST Physical Therapy). Jodi accepted a position of employment with COAST PT upon the completion of her clinical instruction because she recognized how professional the physical therapy services were at COAST PT, which is a philosophy that COAST PT prides itself on. Outside of the clinic, Jodi enjoys spending quality time with her family, especially her children and grandchildren.
