There’s a common road that leads many people to a career in physical therapy. Most PTs are athletes; most experience an injury; most benefit from exceptional, hands-on care; most find that helping people recover from their pain and injury becomes a passion for them. Samira’s road was all downhill—downhill skiing, that is. She tore her ACL. She had her first experience with PT during the grueling rehab process for her knee injury. But she had an amazing physical therapist, someone who not only returned her to prior levels of function, but encouraged her to push further. It was a life changing experience. It has made her a compassionate healthcare practitioner, a better listener, making the best use of every minute she has with patients. She strives to help them reach their goals–and then, together, they set the bar higher. The one thing she knows for sure? Every patient is different, even if they have a similar diagnosis on paper. Samira believes in individualized care. Most importantly, she knows it succeeds. Her education is first rate: a BA from Boston University, and MSt from University of Oxford, and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Columbia University. With that level of academic accomplishment, it’s no wonder she describes herself as “a bit of a perfectionist” and thoroughly detail-oriented, focused on the research and science in her field. But her overall philosophy is straightforward and empathetic: “I believe if you are going to do something you should give it your all and do it well. However, we are all human and make mistakes; the important thing is to learn from them.” Samira’s fitness certifications including Certified Personal Trainer, Indoor Cycling, Indoor Rowing, and Barre. She’s a Member of the American Physical Therapy Association and Women’s Health Section.

Marina Yerovinkina earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy with Honors from Columbia University, where she completed the Advanced Track in Orthopedics and was introduced to the world of dance medicine. Prior to discovering physical therapy, Marina explored different avenues, which included earning a BA in Environmental studies from NYU. Her background in Dance, however, followed by the study of Martial Arts, inevitably cultivated an ardor for the study of physical movement. Through ballet and modern dance she developed an awareness of her own body, and the myriad of ways it can move. Aikido in turn, – Marina’s first martial art of choice – contributed a growing understanding of how to affect the movements of others. Together, these were a springboard to a professional commitment to helping patients become more attuned to their own bodies. Integrating all of her experience, she believes that helping patients understand their injury better on an intellectual level enables them to avoid recurrence, leading to long term physical health. Marina’s mission is clear: to show people how they can regain control over their body. So the payoff comes when a patient integrates the information they learned the previous session, and applies that knowledge to their own body. They are physically and mentally engaged in their own health transformation. These days Marina continues to practice Aikido, but tries to branch out and continue adding to her repertoire of movement through other activities such as rock climbing, snowboarding, kickboxing and more.
