Introduction to Services

Susan Hogan PT

I have been practicing in the schools for 34 years with students from birth to 21 years of age. I am employed by EASTCONN. I have been in the Columbia system for 26 years. I graduated from UCONN and continue to be a Huskies fan. Mr. Hogan and I live in Lebanon. We have 3 children presently living in Newton MA, Alexandria VA, and Austin TX, so we have great vacation destinations! I enjoy hiking, kayaking, reading, letterboxing, and currently participate in Tai Chi classes. Working with the students keeps me young!
