Jennifer started her career in pelvic floor physical therapy at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Hamilton. She has taken coursework with Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute, including male pelvic health.
Jennifer received her Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences from Rutgers University in 2004. She then continued her graduate studies at Neumann University, where she received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2008.
Jennifer feels that pelvic health continues to be a topic that the medical and general community needs to be made aware of since many people are still uneducated about pelvic floor dysfunction, how it can present, and that physical therapy can help.

Katelyn (Kate) R. Sheehan
PT, DPT, ATC | Physical Therapist
Kate began her career in physical rehabilitation with the completion of a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from the University of Delaware in 2013. Afterward, she went on to receive her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Western University of Health Sciences in 2017. Kate has completed orthopedic and pelvic therapy coursework, including from the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute (Pelvic Floor Function & Dysfunction) and the Prague School (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization for Women’s Health).
Kate discovered her passion for pelvic floor physical therapy while working at an orthopedic clinic as an undergraduate. There she discovered that many patients withheld problems such as incontinence, prolapse, and pain because they feared embarrassment, believed their condition was something they needed to live with, or simply did not understand how the problem impacted their broader health.
Kate believes in teaching people that talking about their pelvic floor is not embarrassing, but critical to their well-being, and she strives to educate patients about how pelvic health impacts pain and function throughout their body. Kate’s treatment philosophy combines exercise, manual therapy, and mindfulness to help her patients discover their body’s amazing potential, regardless of whether they are concerned with completing daily tasks or improving athletic performance.
Kate strives to help people of all ability levels feel comfortable in every aspect of their lives so that they can get back to what they love doing. Her priority in treatment is to equip patients with the tools and confidence needed to regain control of their bodies and achieve their goals by addressing their main concerns.
