Olivia graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health and a Minor in Gerontology from The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in 2012. She continued her education at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ in Newark, where she received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2015. While in graduate school, Olivia and her fellow colleagues conducted a study entitled “For individuals with lower extremity musculoskeletal injuries, do off-the- shelf video games, compared to standard of care, improve balance, function, and patient satisfaction?” The abstract was accepted and Olivia presented the poster at the National Combined Section Meeting in 2015.
Since graduating in 2015, Olivia’s primary professional focus has been in the orthopedic outpatient setting, although she has also worked and completed clinical experiences in both acute care and acute rehabilitation. Olivia is a certified LSVT Big clinician, and she has been trained in Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. Olivia is interested in non-operative and operative orthopedic conditions, sports rehabilitation, balance and gait dysfunction, and manual therapy. Her future professional plans include becoming a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist.
