Jessilyn is from the Chicagoland area and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS). In graduate school she held a leadership position with the Illinois Physical Therapy Association - Student Special Interest Group and was a clinic manager at the RFUMS pro bono clinic. During her time at Indiana University she majored in Contemporary Dance, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and an Exercise Science and Psychology minor. She is STOTT Pilates Matwork 1 & 2 certified. Over her 16+ years as a performing artist, she danced in works by Hubbard Street 2, Bolshoi Ballet, Keigwin + Company, Kyle Abraham, and Paul Taylor. She has performed a variety of roles in ballets including The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and Don Quixote. Her experience in dance and dance injuries drives her to help other athletes and dancers return to playing and performing pain free.
Jessilyn is passionate in creating a positive community. She enjoys supporting outreach events in the area, providing injury prevention workshops with dance studios and local fitness studios/gyms. Her ultimate goal is to continue to support the athletes' health and longevity at their sport. When she is not in the clinic, you can find her hiking (her goal is to visit all the National Parks), rock climbing, and of course dancing!
