MSPT, Owner and President
Kevin’s guiding principle is the belief that everything we do and every decision we make is an opportunity to improve the life of another.
Following this belief, Kevin has been helping improve the lives of our senior population for over 25 years. He began his career as a Certified Nursing Assistant and soon realized he wanted to further his education and pursue a degree in Physical Therapy. Kevin proceeded to earn his master’s in Physical Therapy from Arcadia University and quickly returned to the senior care world. As a certified physical therapist, he delivered care in areas such as Cardiac Rehabilitation and Traumatic Brain Injury, spending the majority of his time working in homecare with the elderly population.
While in homecare, Kevin identified a need for supportive services that help aging individuals remain at home. This realization led naturally to the next chapter in his career: opening Senior Helpers Cherry Hill in 2007 and later Senior Helpers Ocean County, which he continues to own and operate today.
Town Square Princeton represents yet another new chapter in Kevin’s accomplished career. His leadership at the center is guided by his belief in its mission, to pioneer services that help seniors lead more independent and fulfilling lives.
