Abigail (Abbe) attended Cornell University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies and Pre-Physical Therapy. She later obtained her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from New York University. In addition to her outpatient orthopedic clinical rotations, she has had experience working at several hospital centers throughout New York City, including Memorial Sloan Kettering, NYU-Langone, the Hospital for Special Surgery, and Mount Sinai.

After tearing her ACL while skiing and experiencing the rehabilitation process firsthand, Abbe discovered her passion for Physical Therapy. She greatly values the role Physical Therapists play not only in addressing their patients’ physical injuries and impairments, but also the ways in which they can support their personal, social and emotional needs. After gaining experience as a physical therapy generalist, Abbe chose to earn her L1 Scoliosis Certification from the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School, an honor held by only 300 therapists nationwide. In addition, she has taken several courses on pain science, manual therapy interventions and holds interests in adolescent physical therapy care, sports rehabilitation, and chronic pain.

Upon graduation from NYU, Abbe received the Department Service Award for her contributions to the school, department, faculty and student body. She received multiple superlative awards from her classmates, such as, “Most Likely to Pay Attention in Class 100% of the Time,” and, “Most Likely to Be a Professor at NYU”. Abbe feels these awards make her a “cool” physical therapist. After work and on weekends, Abbe can be found playing softball, skiing, learning tennis, treating her husband’s pick-up basketball injuries, and praying for the Mets.
