In May of 2012, Joe graduated from Seton Hall University with a doctorate in physical therapy, passed his state board examination, and became a licensed physical therapist in the state of New Jersey. Upon receiving his license, Joseph accepted a full time physical therapist position with JAG-ONE Physical Therapy. In September 2014, Joe was offered and accepted a position as Clinical Director of the Union facility where he has spent the last several years managing a staff of over twelve employees to put forth the premier level of rehabilitative care that JAG-ONE Physical Therapy prides itself on.
Persico states, “It has been an incredible journey to work at JAG-ONE Physical Therapy for over 10 years, and a true honor to work alongside such a strong group of dedicated healthcare professionals.
