Our exceptionally skilled therapists and staff members are trained to meet and exceed the needs of the neurological community. While most post-hospital recovery centers have you work with exercise specialists, we proudly differentiate ourselves by offering our clients the guidance of physical therapists. This shift in knowledge ensures that you reach your goals effectively and safely.
We are here to challenge you because we believe that through hard work and dedication, anything is possible. So, whether your goal is to walk again or to increase your independence, our professionals are dedicated to serving each individual with the highest level of personalized one-on-one care. Let’s meet them…

Dr. Cristina Thurston, PT, DPT, NCS
Cristina Thurston completed her bachelors degree in Exercise Science and Business Management from Florida State University. She then continued on to the University of South Florida where she acquired her physical therapy degree. Cristina gained valuable experience working in the acute care unit in a level one trauma center. From there, she moved to Atlanta, GA to complete her residency at the Shepherd Center where she specialized in spinal cord injuries and acquired brain injuries. All of this invaluable experience prepared Cristina to obtain her Neurologic Certified Specialist degree. Finally, this born-and-raised Florida girl decided it was time to return home to South Florida. She started at NeuroFit360 in January 2018 and she will continue to be an essential part of our operations for many years to come. The expertise and energy that Cristina brings to work everyday are treasured by everyone she comes in contact with.
Dr. Breanne Blackham, PT, DPT
Breanne grew up 30 miles outside of Chicago in Palatine, IL. From there she completed her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from the University of Louisiana, Monroe. Breanne discovered her passion for physical therapy (PT) as she was getting her yoga teacher certification where she developed a love for expression through movement and creativity. Following that, she moved down to the Sunshine State and gained her PT degree from the University of Saint Augustine. After graduation, she joined the NeuroFit360 team in March 2019. Breanne’s hobbies include anything outdoors, art, meditation, and strengthening the mind-body connection. She likes to incorporate those hobbies with how she treats her clients.
Marsha Romain, PT
Marsha Romain grew up just outside of Valdosta, Georgia, making her our very own Georgia Peach. She completed her undergrad from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Exercise Science. From there, our southern belle headed for the Sunshine State to acquire her physical therapy degree at Nova Southeastern University. She’s been at NeuroFit360 since it opened in 2013 and her kind spirit and warm southern hospitality has people coming back for move. Marsha believes, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Isabella Ferreiro Torralbas, PTA
We met Isabella during one of her student rotations here at NeuroFit360. She spent 6 weeks with us in 2018 and we immediately saw her potential and love for neurological recovery. Since then, she completed her AA degree and physical therapy assistant (PTA) license from Concord Career Institute and has joined our team as a PTA. Not to mention, Isabella is also a certified health coach. However, on the weekend you can probably find her doing "whatever is extreme and outdoors” with her precious Vizsla puppy.
Erik Diaz Ramon, PTA
Erik was born and raised in Cuba where he studied to be a physiotherapist at Enrique Cabrera University. Upon his arrival to the United Stated in 2014 he decided to further his education and acquired his PTA degree from the Professional Health Institute.

Brianna Amos, PTA
Brianna is one of NeuroFit360’s newest additions, starting at NeuroFit in early 2019. She graduated with both her associates degree and her physical therapy assistants degree from Broward College.

Ryan Mendoza, Rehab Technician
Ryan is a Florida Gulf Coast University grad. Shortly after completing his bachelors degree in Exercise Science in 2017, he joined the NeuroFit360 team. But the work doesn’t stop there, this year Ryan will also be applying to PT school. In his free time, he loves to stay active. Martial Arts is a true passion of his, as well as personal training. I guess it’s fitting that his favorite quote is by Rocky Balboa: “it ain’t about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
Helene Nau, MSN, APRN, FNP-C.
Helene is a board certified family medicine practitioner with emphasis on emergency medicine and trauma. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Chamberlain University in 2017. She is currently completing her Doctorate in Family Medicine. Helene has been with NeuroFit360 since day one and juggles many hats.

In our facility, she is the APRN in charge of all medical related questions. She is our go-to for injury prevention and health maintenance. Helene utilizes IV infusions to restore the body’s equilibrium in nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Her motto is that, “every next level of your life will demand a different version of yourself, we are all masterpieces in progress.” Helene believes in cooking from scratch, living “from the ground to the table” and “getting back to the essence of things.” Ask to try her homemade Kombucha!
