Dr. Jessica Garretson
Physical Therapist PT, DPT
Jessica joined Coastal Home Rehab in July 2020. She earned her graduate degree from Rutgers University School of Health Professions in 2020 after receiving her bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Caldwell University in 2017. Throughout her clinical experience at Rutgers she worked with children, adult, and geriatric patients in a variety of settings including outpatient, acute care, sub-acute care, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities.
Her areas of interest include neurological and musculoskeletal diagnoses, as well as treating adults with special needs. Jessica has enjoyed the opportunity to work with patients in the home care setting, as patients feel comfortable and it is a conducive environment to make functional gains that improve quality of life. She believes patience, empathy, and compassion are valuable aspects to developing a trusting and successful therapeutic relationship with patients.
In her free time, Jessica enjoys running, hiking, traveling, and spending summers at the beach with friends and family.
