Jennifer Hutton became interested in physical therapy at a young age when her youngest cousin was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. As he began treatments, Jennifer spent time observing him in different therapies and subsequently determined that she would work with children in a similar capacity.
Jennifer graduated from Loma Linda University with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2008, and moved back to her hometown Nashville, TN. She currently works as an independent clinician in Tennessee, treating the developmentally delayed population, as well as children with neurological and orthopedic diagnoses, both congenital and acquired ages 0-18. She is a certified level 1&2 Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) practitioner.
Jennifer’s treatment philosophy is based on understanding the child’s functional needs in and out of her treatment space. She cares very deeply that the families she works with seeing her as a part of their team and knowing with full confidence that she will do everything in her power to help them meet their needs.
Jennifer is involved in several community efforts for children with disabilities. She volunteers building adaptive bicycles for her local Amtryke chapter. She also serves on a committee that organizes an annual triathlon and is developing an adaptive sports camp, both for children with special needs. Jennifer truly enjoys working with children and believes that helping them achieve their independence, and empowering them to move better, will be pivotal as they progress in life.
