C. Shante Cofield grew up in Summit, New Jersey, where she was a 4-year varsity athlete, playing soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. During her sophomore year of high school, Shante tore her ACL, MCL, and meniscus, thus introducing her to the world of physical therapy. Shante successfully rehabilitated her knee and went on to play four years of Division I collegiate soccer at Georgetown University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Health Science.

Wishing to combine her passion for movement and health into a career, Shante continued her educational pursuits at New York University, graduating with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) and earning her certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). Shante used her time at NYU to focus on sports medicine and orthopedic rehabilitation and further developed her orthopedic skills via numerous continuing education courses, later becoming a certified Functional Movement Screen (FMS) provider and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) provider. Always thirsty for knowledge, Shante then went on to become a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS), demonstrating advanced clinical reasoning, skills, and experience. With a strong clinical foundation, Shante then began looking for ways to better round out her skill set, delving into the world of sports performance. Shante earned her Crossfit Level I Trainer Certification (CF-L1), along with the title of Certified RockDoc after successfully completely both Functional Movement Taping I and II (FMT I, II).

In 2011, Shante expanded her skill set and underwent extensive one-on-one training from private practice owner and pelvic floor specialist, Ann Duffy, MPT. With a desire to be able to treat the entire human body, Shante received training in the treatment of the multitude of female and male pelvic floor pathologies, including but not limited to incontinence, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and pain with intercourse.

A firm believer in the mantra of practicing what one preaches, Shante maintains an active lifestyle as an avid runner and fitness enthusiast. She has completed 2 marathons, is an experienced rock climber, and is a member of CrossFit718.

With her unique skill-set, Shante has experience treating individuals of all ages and levels of functionality, be it the post-partum mother with pelvic floor dysfunction or the elite athlete hoping to set a personal record.
