Continuing her student-athlete career at Seton Hall, Dr. Barthel was enrolled in the DPT dual-degree program while simultaneously playing a key role as a defender for the Women’s Soccer team.

She has acquired a wide array of knowledge and a diverse skill set in order to rehab musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiopulmonary cases, including a certification in Kinesiotaping. Regardless of the setting, Dr. Barthel takes pride in seeing her patients grow and improve from their very first visit all of the way through until their very last visit. Dr. Barthel has a strong focus on an individualized approach, working towards meeting functional goals set with her patients at the initial evaluation and educating her patients along the way. She says, “It is extremely rewarding to see patients improve and recover with physical therapy. I am inspired by them every day.”
