- A.S. in Physical Therapy Assisting, Norwalk Community College
“I empower people to live better by making them feel heard. Patients who feel understood are encouraged to better themselves and stay motivated, and that will make them feel empowered.”
Natalia Russell, PTA, is a physical therapist assistant based in Hamden. She worked as a physical therapy aide for four years before she obtained her license. Natalia has a particular interest in working with older populations, knowing helping people with the smallest of things can make a significant difference in their day-to-day lives and ability to move and complete tasks.
Having seen the positive effect physical therapy can have on people, including her loved ones, Natalia discovered she also wanted to be a part of that change. She continues to learn more about the field in order to not only be the best PTA she can be, but to provide her clients with the highest quality of care.
