Marielou DeSouza-Chen, M.S.P.T. | Therapy Director
I hail from Mumbai, India and graduated from the Physical Therapy Program at Seth G.S. Medical College in 1991. After immigrating to the United States, I pursued an Advanced Masters in Physical Therapy at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. Recently I received my LSVT Big Certification. Working in the sub-acute setting has always been my passion, and has been the mainstay of my 25 year career. However, I have also practiced in acute care and home health care settings. My career began as a staff Physical Therapist in Milford CT, progressed onto Physical Therapy Supervisor after five years, and from there, onto Rehab Director after another five years. This role seems to offer me the opportunity to continue working with patients hands on, as well as enjoy the challenges of leading and mentoring a team. What brings me the most gratification from my job is being an integral part of the journey that my patients and their families take as they traverse the road to recovery. A close second is being able to cultivate a therapy team that enjoys coming to work each day and looks forward to meeting challenges with a positive mindset. A fun fact about me is that our family consists of three generations under the same roof. My husband and I try to keep afloat a ship that carries two boys, four elders, and my little doggy daughter Frosty. It seems that living with elders and children, allows for watching so many interactions and learning from them. I am grateful for this, and do believe that they contribute to my sensibilities as a therapist.
