Dana J. Pence, PT

Physical Therapist

“CARE enables me not only to provide pediatric physical therapy services but to help kids participate in a wide range of activities that might not be typically available to them.”

Dana returned to CARE for Children in 2013 after a five year hiatus that saw her providing services in and around Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties.

She began her career as a physical therapist at CARE in 1999 and has years of experience as a pediatric physical therapist and holds a B.S. in Physical Therapy from Daemen College. Dana is constantly expanding her scope of practice by taking a multitude of continuing education classes which focus on the pediatric patient.

Dana is excited to help the organization expand services to better utilize the new facilities in the Ashley Booth Griffin CARE for Children Center and especially loves the therapeutic playroom that is geared for physical therapy sessions and gross motor activities.

She plans to help CARE develop pediatric outpatient services especially focusing on children who receive school based services and who may regress over the summer months if treatment is not continued and consistent. She is also trained to do wheelchair and equipment assessments and some repairs.

Dana looks forward to providing Early Intervention Services in Warren and McKean County, therapy for school age children, and developing new and exciting programs that will help CARE meet its mission of ‘improving the lives of children of all abilities.’

Dana resides in Randolph, New York with her husband, three children, and many pets including Alpacas.
