Meet the Staff at Oakland Spine and Physical Therapy

Marykate Glackin – PTA

Physical Therapy Assistant

Marykate received her Bachelor’s degree from Kean University in Public Relations in 2015. Not long after, a change in career path led her to pursue her Associate’s at Union County College to be a Physical Therapist Assistant, graduating in 2019. She is a volleyball coach of 9 years and was a personal trainer for 3; those things coupled with multiple surgeries and stints in PT inspired her to become a PTA. Through her clinicals at school, she acquired experience in acute/subacute care, outpatient orthopedics, aquatic rehab, and pediatrics. She is certified in Aquakinetics training, which utilizes specialized equipment in the pool for exercise and rehabilitation purposes. She also enjoys powerlifting and playing beach volleyball.
