Jenny Tuccitto, PT, GCS, LSVT BIG Faculty & LSVT BIG Clinical Expert

What do you do?

I am one of the LSVT BIG Faculty – since 2011. I teach live and virtual live courses around the world. I also serve as one of the faculty for the Online LSVT BIG Training and Certification Course and teach many of our monthly educational webinars. In my role as the LSVT BIG Clinical Expert, I answer all of the clinical questions from LSVT BIG therapists that are sent via email, chat or phone messages. In addition, you can find me on Zoom during our weekly office hour sessions (Tuesdays at 8:00 PM Eastern Time in the US) for LSVT BIG Certified Clinicians. Finally, I am the LSVT BIG therapist guiding viewers through LSVT BIG exercises on our LSVT BIG Homework Helper Video series.

How long have you been with LSVT Global?

I have worked for LSVT Global since 2011.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love being able to connect with physical and occupational therapists from all around the world and support them in their success treating people who are living with Parkinson Disease.

Tell us a little about yourself:

I have been a physical therapist for twenty years. I live and work in Minnesota where I treat patients with a range of neurological diagnoses, but my expertise is in Parkinson Disease. I also work part time for LSVT Global supporting and educating clinicians from all around the world.

I met my husband in high school and we have been together for twenty seven years, married for nineteen. We have two very busy teenagers. Our son is sixteen, an avid high school hockey and lacrosse player. Having another driver in our house has been amazing!! Our daughter is fourteen and is also an athlete, playing hockey, lacrosse and volleyball, and this year she has decided to learn how to snowboard. Our youngest “child” is our three year old Labradoodle, Nash, who has been living his best with everyone home much more than normal during this last year


Favorite quote, food, or pastime:

I am a yogi at heart. After giving up running in my twenties, I found my home on a yoga mat. A hot yoga or yoga sculpt class a day keeps me happy and centered. I have even figured out a way to continue this at home over this last year, connecting virtually from my sun porch with a heated floor!

“Jenny has come to play such an integral role in our organization over the past 10 years!  From her first time as faculty for the LSVT BIG Training and Certification Course to tackling the challenges of 2020 with our pivot to virtual live training, Jenny engages with a positive “can-do” attitude, absolute competence, and extreme professionalism. Those qualities are some of the intangible assets that are essential to making an organization work and innovate!  Her care and knowledge when helping our LSVT BIG clinicians as our resident expert helps them excel and be better at what they do. Her impact on improving clinicians lives and the lives of those living with Parkinson’s disease reaches far and wide. Jenny is a ‘ray of sunshine’ and absolute delight for all of us at LSVT Global!”
