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.
