Marina Guarnieri

Senior Physical Therapist Assistant

Marina Guarnieri

I am a native Italian and a graduate of La Guardia Community College, where I completed my training as a physical therapist assistant.  I have been practicing since 2006 and have worked in a variety of settings, from sports rehab to acute inpatient rehab. In 2008, I became a certified lymphedema therapist and brought my expertise to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to help address the needs of our patients with lymphedema. I also have a particular interest in caring for our patients with pelvic floor dysfunction. I am a very enthusiastic therapist who truly enjoys working with my patients and the rehabilitation team in making a difference in the quality of life of our patients.
