Dawn Palmquist PT, DPT works in a rural setting in Morris County Hospital Rehab Center as the Director of Rehab Physical Therapist. Dawn has been in the aquatic Physical Therapy field for 15 plus years. Her interest in aquatic PT began as a member of a swim team at a very young age and she has always loved the water since. When introduced to aquatic therapy during a rotation, she immediately knew she wanted to incorporate it into how she was going to help patients recover. Dawn loves most seeing how the properties of water help people move in ways that they haven't been able to, seeing how it changes people's lives, perception of what they are able to accomplish, and seeing people recover faster, and how confident they become when aquatic therapy has been added to their plan of care. Dawn became a member of the academy to become connected with other aquatic therapists and found it an easy way to stay informed with the most up-to-date research. She finds it important to be able to provide the best care for her patients. When Dawn is not in the pool, you can find her enjoying time with her family and watching her kid's activities. Thank you Dawn Palmquist for sharing a little bit about you!
