I want my kids to have FUN and not feel like they're in therapy. I like to call therapy at home "FUNctional theraPLAY!
Jenna E. Moffo, PT, DPT



I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) with specialized training in developmental pediatrics, rheumatology, hypermobility, torticollis, inpatient-to-outpatient transition care, orthotics and serial casting.

I chose a career in physical therapy because I knew that it would allow me an opportunity to spend time getting to know my patients well and to, thus, make a profound impact on their lives. I have always loved working with kids because of the joy and wonder they have for the world. After volunteering in the physical therapy department at Cincinnati Children’s, I was hooked! I knew this place would support a lifelong career in pediatrics, allowing me to serve families nationally and in our community.

I value the opportunity to positively impact a child’s life. As a mother of a son with a chronic condition, I feel a personal connection and a unique desire to provide patients and families with the best care, support and outcomes. This drives me to connect more personally with my patients and their families as we create a home program together. I want to provide “tools to go in a patient’s toolbox” that realistically support their functional lives. My goal is to empower patients and families to be a voice in their goals and home program and to be involved in community activities that encourage them to be active. I want my kids to have FUN and not feel like they're in therapy. I like to call therapy at home "FUNctional theraPLAY!"

I support a handful of teams and specialty services that can help me care for a patient from infancy into adulthood. If anyone has a chronic condition, I aim to help them manage their care and create a sustainable program for life. I have floated and worked in inpatient and sports PT, as well as serving in my current role in developmental pediatrics. I volunteer with our Be Well program and co-lead our hiking program, which provides kids with disabilities an opportunity to hike even with accessibility needs like a wheelchair or gait trainer.

At home, my family tells people that I “do not sit still!” When not working at Cincinnati Children’s, personal training at Parkinson’s Community Fitness Center or exercising, I am chasing around my toddler, snuggling my fur babies (two kitties), singing and playing guitar, crafting or cooking up something delicious and new!
