Throughout school, she diversified herself by completing her clinicals in the subacute, school-based pediatric, and outpatient physical therapy settings in clinics all over New England. After graduation, Shelly started working in Portland, Maine at a skilled nursing facility where she grew to love working with the geriatric population. Although Shelly is new to our team, we have known her for many years.
