Kevin Froese

Physical Therapist


Kevin is originally from Watertown, CT and graduated from the University of Hartford with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He began his career as a physical therapist in West Hartford, CT where he developed a passion for sports medicine, specifically in golf rehabilitation, throwing athletes, and running mechanics. During this time, he completed advanced training with the Titleist Performance Institute, which focuses on the body-swing connection to help golfers of all levels improve their game. Kevin is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS), which brings a unique approach to his rehabilitation programs with a focus on exercise to help patients reach their goals. This passion assisted Kevin in pursuing the position of head physical therapist for University of Hartford Division I athletic programs for several years. 

In addition to his sports medicine background, Kevin has completed advanced course work in areas including post surgical rehabilitation, spine rehabilitation, concussion and vestibular interventions. These skills have been further broadened with his experience as a traveling physical therapist, allowing him to learn from healthcare providers in various regions of the country and work with different populations. Kevin has settled in Norwich, NY with his wife and he is excited to be a part of this community. When Kevin isn’t in the clinic you can find him on the golf course, in his woodshop, or at the local brewery.

Jamie Dickerson

Physical Therapist Assistant

My name is Jamie Dickerson. I went to college at Herkimer County Community College for my Physical Therapist Assistant degree and graduated in 2013. Since then, I have been working as a PTA in an outpatient orthopedic setting in Sherrill, NY. I am very excited to become part of the team here at LaFrance PT, and further my experience and education.

I have lived in Morrisville for nearly 10 years with my husband and we now have 4 children. I love camping, hiking, gardening, and all things food. I was raised in the country hills on the outskirts of Sherburne and continue to be a country girl at heart even though I live in town now.

I look forward to meeting more people from the community I live in as I join the team at LaFrance PT.
