Who is Kelsey Zamoyski?

share to

Hello! I am Kelsey Zamoyski and, like many South Florida residents, I am a New York transplant! I grew up in Buffalo and attended school at SUNY (State University of New York) University at Buffalo College, graduated with a Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy (MOT). Additionally, I am a National Board Certified Occupational Therapist (NBCOT), Certified Hand Therapist (CHT), and Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist (CEAS-I). I specialize in treating shoulder, elbow, and hand dysfunction and also develop programs designed to improve clients’ posture.

Here is a little backstory about why I entered the field of therapy. When I was in high school, I was diagnosed with a genetic joint disorder and I was told nothing could help. I needed to protect and preserve my joints, and should consider a career that was low-impact. Refusing to accept the negative outlook from doctors and frustrated by the lack of help from multiple health professionals, I decided to learn everything I could about the body and rehabilitate myself. I switched my major from architecture (a low-impact career!) to occupational therapy. Armed with this knowledge, I rehabilitated myself.

Now, more than a decade later, I continue to shock the doctors with the tasks I can complete (including hands-on manual therapy of my clients) and the sports I can play. I am an example of the power of thoughtful and customized care. Through a personalized therapy program, I help people avoid surgery, get off pain medications, and return to pre-injury activity levels. This leads directly to increased energy and renewed enjoyment of clients’ favorite activities! My passion is inspiring people to understand that age and diagnosis are not limitations. I have helped clients at all ages (even 92!) achieve results beyond their expectations and understand the amazing things their bodies can and will do. My job is not only amazing, but truly rewarding. I created a place where this is possible and this place is Defy Therapy & Wellness.

Tara is the most amazing physical therapist I've seen. I've been playing soccer my whole life and her input has greatly increased my performance and allowed me to recover from serious injuries to my ankles and groin.

Tara is a true professional as well as a very understanding, patient and kind PT. DEFY WAS AND IS A GAME CHANGER FOR ME. I HAVE REGAINED NOT JUST MY BALANCE BUT MY CONFIDENCE. I will recommend Defy to anyone, those who need help in balancing to prevent falls as well as those who have any Physical problems that can be treated with excellent Physical Therapy. Defy is five star all the way.
