Julie Rosenberg, PT, MS, MA
I entered the physical therapy field after earning a Master of Science Degree from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. I became a New York licensed PT in 1997.
Before getting licensed, and upon completion of a Master of Arts Degree in Applied Physiology from Teacher's College, Columbia University in 1991, I worked for several years as an Exercise Physiologist and Personal Trainer in New York City and Westchester County, NY.
In the City, I taught college courses in Fitness and Weight Control as an Adjunct Lecturer at Hunter College and St. Francis College (Brooklyn Heights, NY).
Before graduating as a Physical Education Major at Ithaca College, 1987, where I earned a Bachelors Degree, I spent my freshman year as an incoming BFA Jazz Guitar Major - a student of what was then my chosen field of study.
In the late 80s and the 90s, I developed my own brand of aquatic exercise and rehabilitation program known as Deep Water Running. My program utilized several public and private swimming pools and drew upon a clientele based in Westchester County and Southern Connecticut and included individuals referred by physicians and various health care practitioners around the County.
I launched my first private practice, in 2001, which became Westchester County's and the New York Metropolitan areas very first state-of-the-art aquatic and land-based physical therapy and wellness center. The center was called Amphibious Rx.
Through Amphibious Rx, I was able to first-hand realize the goal I had, which was to deliver high-level, individualized care to physical therapy patients and dues-paying wellness members in a beautifully designed, well-equipped, accessible setting. In addition, as it opened its doors to graduate students of Mercy College and New York Medical College, Amphibious Rx contributed to the knowledge base of future physical therapists.
Following the closing of Amphibious Rx, 2006, I continued as Adjunct Faculty at New York Medical College where I taught Exercise Science in the Doctoral PT Program and worked as staff PT in an out-patient orthopedic practice until in 2007 when I opened my second PT practice located on the campus of Purchase College, S.U.N.Y.
At Purchase College, I taught Anatomy and Physiology in the Biology Department and have had the opportunity to meet the physical therapy needs in a college-age population, as well as, adults in the surrounding area. All-in-all, it has been a rich environment with plenty to offer someone like me: a life-time learner, teacher and Physical Therapist.
I closed the Purchase College office in November 2014 to focus my efforts as both exercise physiologist and physical therapist on an adult population in my Katonah office. I am updating my website to reflect some exciting new changes.
