Physical Therapist, DPT
Monique Dupree is a New Jersey native who earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, NJ and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ.
Monique believes in using a holistic approach when treating patients by integrating postural education and core exercise with selective strengthening. She utilizes carefully-selected exercises to not only target the area being treated but also to enhance overall movement and quality of life for her patients.
Prior to joining ActiveCare, Monique worked in a clinic that specialized in diagnoses of the lower back and neck, integrating functional movement to prepare patients for safe discharge.
Monique is licensed in New York and New Jersey and is looking forward to taking courses to further develop her manual skills in the areas of sports taping and peripheral joint and spinal mobilizations.
In her free time, Monique enjoys spending time in the city, dining and taking in the arts.
