Hi! My name is Dr. Jennifer Palmer and I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I have a BS in Health Science with a minor in Business Administration from Lebanon Valley College in 2013, my DPT earned in 2015. I am a mom of 2 little humans who have changed my whole perspective on life. My daughter is the one who led me on an even more recent journey of becoming a Baby-Led Sleep and Well-Being Specialist in January 2021.
My interests as a professional include: primary care PT and direct access, sleep health and its impact on human function, pre and post-natal care for women with a focus on those who have disabilities that may impact their physical function and performance during the transition to parenthood, normal developmental sleep in babies and toddlers and how this is impacted from many external factors (that aren’t sleep). In regards to infant and toddler sleep, I do NOT support cry it out (CIO) or Ferber to assist with sleep, I focus more on attachment parenting. I also treat people with hip/knee OA through an app called Joint Academy (California and Virginia only).
My interests/hobbies on a personal level include: traveling, photography, hiking, exercise, camping… basically anything outdoors and with my family and friends! We also have 2 cats 🙂
Of note, throughout my page, there may be a small commission associated with links you click! This is at no cost to you. I only recommend things I truly like. Thank you for supporting me!
