Jennie Frick, PT, DPT
Jennie graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Science in 2008. She majored in Science-Business, a unique major that combines pre-medical requirements with core business classes. During her senior year Jennie became the first ND student to walk on to the women’s soccer team and helped the Fighting Irish all the way to a NCAA Final Four appearance. After completing her undergraduate studies, Jennie was accepted into the physical therapy program at Texas Woman’s University in Dallas, Texas. Jennie received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in May 2012 and began working at TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston, Texas that July.
Jennie was a full-time employee at TIRR Memorial Herman from July 2012 to March 2013 and had the opportunity to work alongside top doctors and therapists in developing rehab programs for brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders. It was here that Jennie was first introduced to Neuro-IFRAH ®, “a highly effective treatment approach for patients affected by lesions at or above the brain stem,” and developed her passion for treating patients with neurological disorders. Jennie became a Neuro-IFRAH ® certified therapist in 2013, completed Advanced Neuro-IFRAH ® Upper Extremity and Hand Function/Fine Motor courses in 2015, and became a Neuro-IFRAH Instructor ® in 2016. Jennie now teaches Introductory Neuro-IFRAH ® courses on the treatment and management of stroke and brain injury patients to physical and occupational therapists in Southwest Louisiana. Jennie also became certified in the treatment of vestibular disorders from the American Institute of Balance in January 2014.
Jennie and her husband Dan relocated to Lake Charles in January 2013 and began working at Hope Therapy Center in October 2013. Jennie and Dan are the proud parents of Annie and Michael.
