J.J. Mowder-Tinney, PT, PhD, NCS, C/NDT, CSRS

National Stroke Association is pleased to introduce the very first Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist (CSRS), J.J. Mowder-Tinney. J.J. is an associate professor at Nazareth College in the physical therapy department and has almost 20 years of experience in a multitude of clinical settings, the majority with people with neuromuscular deficits.

Even with J.J.’s impressive experience and background, she still learned from the CSRS seminars. She gained new insights into applying the latest research to her practice. She also appreciated the opportunity for certification. “Passing a test brings legitimacy to the learning and makes you review the coursework, which is shown to improve retention,” she says. J.J. also likes that CSRS is an outward acknowledgement of her commitment to excellence in stroke care. She looks forward to being a part of the growing list of CSRS professionals.

Congrats to J.J.! To learn more about CSRS and to view a list of all the occupational and physical therapists who have recently achieved their certification, visit www.stroke.org/csrs.
