Where has Jacqueline been?

A born and bred New Yorker, it’s only natural Jacqueline would find her work family here in NYC. Known as Jacquie, Jackie, Jacq, and/or Jax by her family and friends, her smile-for-days is what all usually take note of upon meeting her! Jacquie graduated with an undergraduate degree in Recreation Management and Leisure Studies, however after a few years working at a beautiful resort realized that was not her life’s calling. With the desire to help and heal others through connection, she then returned to school and graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2010. Jacquie also became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist with training from the Norton School of Lymphatic Studies in 2011, and is excited about bringing that practice to Symbio Physiotherapy. It is the ability to assist individuals in regaining function, health, independence, and overall quality of life that drives Jacquie to continued growth and success within the field of physical therapy.

 

Where is Jacqueline now?

“The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.” This quote symbolizes Jacquie’s philosophy on becoming the person you want to be, and that aspiration to continuously grow and manifest each day. Knowing that life-long success cannot be achieved in a day, but instead must be worked for consistently over time. The past year and a half has been one of extreme transformation for Jacquie (losing a little over 80lbs!), and she believes this is possible for all clients she encounters. With experience in acute rehabilitation, oncology-specific acute care, and outpatient orthopedics, Jacquie’s mission is to provide compassionate, individualized, and efficient patient care with the intent of assisting all to achieve their goals. When not at Symbio Physiotherapy, Jacquie can be found burning up gears at Peloton Cycle, toning up at the gym, or out chasing after her silly French Bulldog furbaby (well, he just turned 6, but he’ll always be her baby)!!

 

Where is Jacqueline going?

Forward… Always forward. Jacquie is currently working to learn and grow with the best here at Symbio, while enjoying each moment in-between as it comes. She also hopes to increase the stamps in her passport, learn a foreign language, and gain connections with many throughout!
