About Sharon…
Sharon has been a Physical Therapist for almost 30 years, working primarily in orthopedics. She is especially interested in sports injury prevention and post-injury functional rehabilitation. She has a strong background in post-surgical knee rehabilitation, after years of working at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO. Sharon has had numerous ski injuries and resultant complex knee surgeries herself, and therefore offers a true personal connection to the rehab process, with attention to post-op strategies, resulting in a quick and efficient recovery.

Sharon began working with the pediatric population 13 years ago and continues to work part-time in both the Clinton and the Lyme-Old Lyme school systems, providing physical therapy to children with a variety of gross motor needs. She is the pediatric physical therapist at PTSMC Essex for child intervention and to accent their school or “birth-to-three” services. She also has a special interest in treating Scoliosis for all ages utilizing the Schroth method of treatment.

Sharon’s favorite hobby is being a parent to her two children. She is passionate about family, childhood development and education, skiing, cycling, hiking, all things in nature, foreign travel, and of course, physical therapy! Sharon has a degree in Foreign Languages – she is fluent in French and can communicate in Spanish.
