Nicholas Federici, PT is a graduate of New York University with a degree in Physical Therapy. He began his career treating patients in nursing homes, as well as in-home healthcare. As a staff therapist at St. Clares Hospital in Denville, NJ, he gained hard-won insights and experience and developed the ability to exceed patient expectations. He later brought these attributes and a commitment to compassionate care to his role of Chief Physical Therapist at Riverside Hospital in Boonton, NJ, before starting his practice.
Nick believes in a one-on-one approach to physical therapy, in which the patient’s treatments are evidenced-based and they are educated in how they play an important role in their recovery and maintenance of the results gained through treatment. Nick is also an avid physical fitness proponent, and has recently been certified as a personal trainer.
Nick, when not serving the community of Parsippany in his clinic, loves to be with his wife Denise and their two children, Matthew and Christine, who also reside in Parsippany. They all recently celebrated a new addition to the family…granddaughter, Giuliana, born to Matthew and his wife, Jessica.

She received her Bachelors Degree in Healthcare Management from South University in Savannah, GA and also holds a Masters of Science in Leadership. In addition to her education, Jessica holds several personal fitness certifications, including NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer, Certified Adventure Fitness Coach, and Mad Dog Athletics Spinning Instructor. She is also published wellness writer on Livestrong.com, and is the co-creator of Little Black Dress Fitness and Corporate Wellness Solutions. Jessica has successfully competed in several triathlons, half marathons, and one full marathon. Jessica believes that most illnesses can be prevented or improved through proper nutrition based on a whole foods approach along with exercise; and that life in general, is lived better when you are fit. Jessica continues to help clients by sharing her passion for fitness, nutrition and health. She hopes to inspire others to be the best parent, friend, sibling, or spouse that they can be, by improving their health and adding happiness to their lives.
