PT, MA, PRPC
Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification.
Debra was born and raised in New York City, where she returned to pursue a career in modern dance, after receiving an M.A. in Dance and Human Kinetics from George Washington University. Following her own dance related injuries, she became fascinated by the burgeoning field of dance medicine, and earned a B.S. in physical therapy from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. After graduating, Debra returned to Manhattan and for 12 years she worked at orthopedic and sports medicine clinics in the financial district. She also created a practice with a focus on pre-natal and post-partum issues, located in New York’s only free-standing midwifery-run childbearing center. In 2002, Debra relocated to New Jersey, where she immersed herself in the study and practice of her true professional passion—healing pelvic floor dysfunction. Debra’s work is informed by her love of movement, her continuing commitment to excel in delivering skilled hands-on care, and helping to empower all patients to take responsibility for their own care. In 2014, Debra received certification through the Herman& Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute. She is proud to be part of the inaugural group of highly experienced pelvic floor therapists receiving this recognition.
