Dr. Reisman received her Bachelor's Degree in health science and her Master's Degree in physical therapy from the College of St. Scholastica. She went on to earn her Doctorate Degree from the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomechanics and Movement Science at the University of Delaware and completed post-doctoral training with Dr. Amy Bastian at the Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Reisman is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware. Dr. Reisman's research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of movement dysfunction following stroke, as well as how and why different treatments improve this dysfunction.
