Student Spotlight of the Week

July 16, 2020  / Tags: Physical Therapy, DPT, DPT Student, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Student Spotlight

This week’s Student Spotlight goes to first year Physical Therapy student, Deanna DeNapoli. Deanna is a New York City native, but moved to Orlando, Florida 16 years ago with her family. She fell in love with sports and exercise at a young age and thought physical therapy was the ideal career for her. Pursuing a career as a PT will allow Deanna to help others accomplish their fitness goals and rehabilitate them back to prior level of function. Quite simply put, she enjoys helping people. Quarantine has been a challenge for Deanna, as she misses spending time with her friends and family. She tries to get outdoors as much as possible, whether she’s studying, lounging by the pool, or playing with her dog you can always catch her outside. Deanna loves hanging out with friends and family, traveling, going to the beach, and working out whenever she can!
