Introducing Your New Favorite Health and Fitness Coach!

My name is Jess and I am currently a licensed and practicing Doctor of Physical Therapy in Massachusetts. Born and raised in Rhode Island (Go Rhody!) I have been an athlete my whole life. My favorite sport is basketball and as a former high school and collegiate athlete I have had my fair share of injuries. I have rehabbed 3 ACL tears over the course of my athletic career which is how I came to be a PT. Throughout my rehab process I also fell in love with lifting and training in the gym. I worked as a fitness trainer for a few years before going to Grad school and I have a passion for sharing my knowledge and experience to promote active and healthy lifestyles. I have gone from being a huge gym rat to now as a young professional, just trying to find ways to squeeze my workouts in between work and everything else life throws at you. Having gone through every phase of fitness, I am confident I can help you perform at whatever level of fitness it is you are looking to achieve.
Outside of my professional interests, I’m a typical 20-something who loves spending time with friends and family. I love doing anything outdoors and exploring my (what I believe to be) highly underrated state!
Thank you all so much for being here and I hope you find what you’re looking for on my page! I am here to help so feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions for any information you might be looking for that you cannot find here as well! I am so excited to be able to share what I love and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you too!
