Andrews University, 1996, Master of Science in Physical Therapy
Founded Rehab Resolutions, Inc. 2004
Sofia is both visionary owner and master practitioner at Rehab Resolutions, Inc. The high-quality care our patients have come to expect is born of a unique model championed and actualized through Sofia. Originally from Canada, Sofia first became aware of the power of physical therapy while in high school during a job shadow opportunity. Not only did patients feel better, but the life of a physical therapist intrigued her. Active involvement with problem solving, ongoing learning: A perfect fit. At University, curiosity earned her the attention of the faculty and proficient hands-on skill the attention of her mentor. Wanting more for her patients, Sofia sought training in Active Release Techniques®, a patented technique which revolutionized patient care because of its successful and speedy impact on soft tissue injuries. Sofia founded Rehab Resolutions, Inc. in 2004 with the express purpose of providing expert care and a unique physical therapy experience, targeting not only the immediate condition or injury but the patient’s overall well-being. Sofia’s abiding care for her patients translates into her hiring practices. To be a therapist at Rehab Resolutions, Inc. requires commitment to creating and maintaining high-quality, intensive, and individualized care. If you are someone with a chronic condition, a neurological disorder, a sports injury, or needing-post operative care, Rehab is for you. Hands on therapy at Rehab means getting better faster, helping the body heal and get it working to the fullest. Individual patients with individual stories leave rehab with the same story – they are back to the lives they love. Sofia’s passions in addition to physical therapy include equestrian pursuits and outdoor activities with her family.

Dawn Brown, PTA
Born in Portland, Maine, Dawn spent most summers and school vacations skiing, and enjoying family in Bethel, Maine. Dawn currently lives in East Longmeadow, MA, where she has resided for most of her life. In 1986, her family started JB’s Ice Cream Factory, where she worked, managed, and manufactured homemade ice cream for 27 years.
In 1998, Dawn graduated from Springfield Technical Community College and received an Associates of Science in Physical Therapist Assistant degree, and soon after became a licensed PTA. She began working in outpatient facilities with a focus on worker’s comp, MVA, and slip and fall injuries.
Later Dawn worked in a Nursing Home setting, continually expanding her PTA experience. Sadly, Dawn was injured at work, which afforded her the unique perspective to feel exactly how many of her patients felt after being injured. This injury led Dawn to physical therapy and Sofia Zanzarella, PT, who assisted with her recovery.
Soon after in 2005, Dawn ran into Sofia at a Falcon’s game, where she was promoting her new business, and within a month started working at Rehab Resolutions, Inc. The manual skills, and ART techniques she was using were amazing, with patient results immediately. After working in the field for 7 years, she knew at that point she was working with the best Physical Therapist in the area.
Now almost 12 years later, Dawn has been an instrumental role in educating and instructing patients in appropriate body mechanics, and postural corrections to relieve pain and emphasize quality of life at Rehab Resolutions, Inc. Dawn is also a Wellness Advocate, and is certified in Aroma Touch Treatments using DoTerra Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

Danielle Boyd, PTA
Rehab Resolutions, Inc. July 2017
Associate in Science in Physical Therapy Assistant
Springfield Technical Community College, 2014
Danielle’s zest for helping people heal animates every interaction with clients and with the world around her. She says, "Physical therapy combines my two passions: science and people." So passionate is Danielle about education in physical therapy, she was awarded the Lucille B. Hood Scholarship at STCC for her academic achievement. It’s no surprise Danielle joined the therapeutic staff at Rehab. As a young child she watched as hands-on touch brought relief to an ailing family member. Since then, she knew healing with her hands would be her life’s work. With her sensitivity to the specific needs of maturing bodies, Danielle has worked also successfully at skilled nursing facilities. At Rehab she finds that “hands-on” is not just a phrase, but is a valued professional practice applied to all people. Always eager to continue her education about her patients and physical therapy, she seeks professional development in the areas of deep tissue manipulation and trigger point release techniques. Physical therapy, for her, is to the human body like a mechanic is to a car. The body needs a tune-up. She puts PT to use in her life and gets regular tune-ups too. When not working with patients, she enjoys travel and fragrance collection.
Irina Zuev, PTA
Rehab Resolutions, Inc. January, 2018
Associate in Science in Physical Therapy Assistant
Springfield Technical Community College, 2015
Irina knew she wanted to work in health care, but was not sure what that would mean for her life. A knee injury in high school gave her unexpected direction. This injury, combined with Irina’s strong motivation to help others, drove her to research physical therapy as a possible career option. Irina’s professional expertise and proficiency in how the body works is matched by a commitment to patient care, especially to patients in pain. Irina quite literally hears patients where they live, both in their healing journey and in their multiple languages. Irina speaks Russian and Ukraine fluently, bringing comfort and clarity to patients who come to Rehab with questions about their care. Some of her most memorable hands-on treatment successes include relieving pain of the soft tissue and joint injuries, and pain with TMJ patients. Witnessing their recovery and ability to walk again, she says, is the greatest possible reward. Being with patients and creating a relationship with them from the start to finish of treatment is what makes Rehab special to her. A quiet and intense dedication to excellence and attention to detail pairs with Irina’s sense of joy with life. Her own relaxation and self-care involve hiking, volleyball, being at the beach, and spending time with her family.
