When she is not at work she enjoys spending time with her husband of 16 years and their two boys (15 and 10). She can be found in ice rinks all over New England watching her boys play hockey. Brandi has interests in fitness, particularly yoga and cycling and she enjoys reading when she can find a quiet moment to herself.


Malissa Kosakowski

Malissa joined our team in 2019 and enjoys interacting and helping all the great clients of Quality Physical Therapy. She is a mother of three children and adopted 3 puppies in 2021! She loves spending time with her family and fur babies along with doing crafts, reading, and performing household projects.

She is not only a vital member of our staff, but she has also been a frequent patient too! She has insight into the patient perspective here at Quality Physical therapy. She has enjoyed working with all our therapists and is an enthusiastic fan of laser therapy!


Rosie

Rosie is a Cavachon ( ½ bichon fries & ½ Cavalier King Charles). She joined our staff when she was 11 weeks old and less than 3 pounds. She is very excited to welcome everyone to the office. She has decided that starting each session with a belly rub (for her) is good therapy for our patients. She takes her fitness to heart and is working on her strength training. She can be seen carrying large objects such as shoes, sticks, rocks, and anything else she can grab. So be careful with your belongings!
