She has worked with a multitude of complex diagnoses within each department, however, neurological diagnoses are her special interest.

Her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree is from New York Medical College. In this interview, Isabelle discusses Wallenberg Syndrome, the role of physical therapists in treating it, how unique the condition is from a rehabilitation standpoint, possible long-term deficits, and research questions it would be useful to pursue through further study regarding this Syndrome.
