An Interview with Debra Serzan, PTA.

Debra Serzan, PTA has been working at Physical Therapy Services for over 35 years. Debbie has lived in the Pompton Plains area for most of her life. She enjoys working with many people in the community to return to their previously active lifestyle. Debbie is very involved with a lot of our post operative rehabilitation patients, and helps them regain their strength and flexibility.


We asked Debbie a few questions about her career in physical therapy.

Why did you become a physical therapy assistant?

--- I wanted to work in physical therapy because I enjoy helping others and teaching them different ways to help them lead more active lives. People should be able to enjoy their life to the fullest, and I want to help them achieve their goals.


What is your favorite part about being a physical therapy assistant?

--- I love watching people change from their first appointment to their status when they are finished with their rehab. Post-operative rehabilitation patients are truly able to see a drastic improvement in their function. It is very gratifying to see people able to play with their children/grandkids, return to their sporting activities, and for some people, just be able to walk again.


What would you say to a student interested in pursuing a career in physical therapy?

--- A student should volunteer their time with a physical therapist to see if they are interested in the field. There are many different aspects to PT, and there is something for everyone!


What is one piece of advice you would give your younger self?

--- I would tell myself that when one door closes, another door opens. If you work hard and are determine you are able to do whatever you want to do. The world is yours!
