Serena is from Charlotte, North Carolina where she grew up, attended college, and currently lives with her husband and three children. She attended CPCC and UNCC where she studied Physical Therapy and Public Health Sciences. Serena spent most of her career working in Acute Care and Post Acute Care Physical Therapy where she treated a variety of neuro, cardiac, and post surgical patients but her main passion was treating trauma patients in Charlotte’s only Level 1 trauma hospital. She had a passion for treating severe and multi-system trauma patients and Spinal Cord Injury patients.
While working in the post acute care setting, Serena witnessed the need for Telemedicine services in skilled nursing facilities where her patients were constantly readmitted to the hospital. Their frequent trips to the ER were hindering their progress in Physical and Occupational Therapy, therefore prolonging their return to prior level of function and delaying discharge back to their home and loved ones.
She is excited to be part of TeleHealth Solution, and knows first hand the change it can bring to skilled nursing facilities and critical access hospitals across the country. Serena enjoys travelling with her husband and three young children, gardening, baking, and spending time with family and friends.
