When Jessica is not busy in our Powhatan clinic, you can find her at different sporting events to support her kids. She also enjoys training and taking care of her Golden Retrievers that she breeds. Jessica is very active in the community, as well. She works as needed as a physical therapist at Beth Shalom Life Care Community (Skilled Nursing facility). She is Powhatan Little League Treasurer. She coordinates fundraisers for Pocahontas Elementary School. She also volunteers one afternoon a week, every week at her children’s school to help their teachers with various tasks.

When asked what the best advice she has received is, Jessica thinks of her father. “My Dad gave me great advice when he told me to choose a career that I loved and then I wouldn’t feel as though work was work but a passion. I feel that this advice really helped me because in choosing the field of PT I thoroughly enjoy my work as a craft and not as a job”.

Many of the physical therapists at Tidewater Physical Therapy Inc. hold Direct Access Certification through the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy.

Jessica holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
