Marielle Handley

Marielle Handley PT, DPT, CSCS, Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Neurologic Physical Therapy

Hospital for Special Care

New Britain, CT


Marielle received her Doctoral degree from University of Connecticut and completed her neurologic physical therapy residency training at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and University of Delaware.  

My love for athletics and strength and conditioning initially attracted me to the field of physical therapy. As I gained a deeper appreciation for Neurologic conditions, I saw the vital role of physical therapy in utilizing strong exercise prescription principles and adequate intensity and dosage of training to empower others to maintain or regain their health and quality of life.  

Why are you an APTA member? 

I am an active member of the APTA because I value having access to the most up-to-date, evidenced-based resources that guide our practice. APTA connects me with a community of like-minded physical therapists that want to move our practice forward.  

When you're not working what do you like to do in your free time?  

I enjoy taking my dog, Mischa, for walks, spending time with my family and friends, traveling, snowboarding, kayaking, and going to the beach.
