Welcome New Physical Therapy Aide Kelly Picciuro!

Kelly-Picciuro-PT-ActiveCareKelly Picciurro was born in Marlboro, NJ and lived there until she entered college in the fall of 2009. She recently graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in psychology. She will enter a physical therapy program in the fall of 2014 in order to fulfill her wish to become a physical therapist. Kelly realized she wanted to go into the field of physical therapy after working in a PT clinic in Maryland and two hospitals, one in New York City and one in Washington, DC. Kelly also enjoys working out and staying fit, going to the beach, and traveling around the world with her family. She plans to open her own practice once she graduates from school. She is very excited to be part of the ActiveCare PT team and knows that she will gain great knowledge from this experience, preparing her for school and what will come after she graduates.


Kelly returns to the ActiveCare Physical Therapy staff working again as a PT aide. She has just finished her 2nd year at Rutgers School of Health Professions, Doctor of Physical Therapy program. She will spend her summer working alongside Dr. Wu to further add to her academic knowledge. At the end of the summer, Kelly returns to school to finish the program in clinic.

Please join us in welcoming Kelly to the team!
