About the Therapist 

Jennifer M. DeFeo M.S. OTR/L earned a Masters of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Touro College School of Health Sciences in 2004, with an emphasis in Geriatrics and Hand Therapy. Her career started in a Skilled Nursing Facility in Woodbury while she concurrently worked at NCMC where she rotated through, inpatient, outpatient, acute care and burn unit.

During her time at the hospital she developed a strong background in medicine, illness, and injury as it relates to rehabilitation. Desiring experience in upper extremity rehabilitation and sports medicine, she obtained a position in a privately owned outpatient Hand Therapy Facility in West Hempstead. Her goal was to gain a strong background in general Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, while honoring her skills as a hand therapist. Her dedication to the field lead her to be the owner of Long Island Hand Therapy in Garden City.
