She began her career in the 1980’s in New York City, working with families and children in child guidance clinics and outpatient mental health centers.
Almost 20 years ago, Ms Knitzer began working with seniors, out of a devotion to and appreciation of their wisdom, triumphs and their unique life stories. (She received a certificate in Gerontology from Rutgers University in 2000.)

In her free time, she enjoys swimming, cooking, reading fiction, keeping up with new treatment approaches, and spending time with her family.
