Jennifer Jacob

Physical Therapist
Master in Neurological Physical Therapy

I started my professional career in Guatemala in a private clinic treating and designing customized therapy programs for patients with orthopedic and neurological problems.

In 2013, I was part of the founding members of the first department of oncological physiotherapy at the National Institute of Oncology (INCAN) in Guatemala and later lead the new department as Head of Oncological Physiotherapy for 3 years, during this time I was also a professor for Oncological Physiotherapy Course at Rafael Landivar University.

In 2016 I moved to Israel where I work as physical therapist treating adult patients with neurological problems at the Cochav Hatzafon Association where I introduced the use of the MOVE Methodology in adult patients in Israel.

In 2018 became a licensed swimming instructor from Wingate Academy in order to teach patients from The Cochav Hatzafon Association with mild disabilities how to swim.

In 2020 got a Master's degree in Neurological Physical therapy from the International University of Valencia, Spain.
