Not Just A Job
As a Physical Therapist, I am eager to come to work each day to meet and help some new and exciting people. I approach each day in the clinic with a great sense of pride and strive to provide the best care available to each patient I treat. Whether I am having a simple conversation with a patient or helping them meet their rehabilitation goals, I truly enjoy every patient interaction and recognize the importance of establishing rapport with each patient. Being a Physical Therapist allows me to work with amazing people from all walks of life and creates a constantly changing environment that is full of challenges. This is why I feel being a Physical Therapist is not just a job, but also an adventure!
The Value of an Education
One of my mentors once told me: “Just because you graduate from school doesn’t mean you stop learning.” This is a core principal I follow because I know learning is life long process. I also know continuing education and learning will help every patient achieve faster results to get back to life as they knew it, before their injury. I achieve this by staying current on all research and literature available and continuing to learn from each individual patient experience. I also go to every avenue to educate all of my patients on their condition, how I plan on helping them in their recovery, what they should expect while in therapy, what they can do to assist the healing process, and what they can do to prevent the issue from coming back.
Serving The Community
Working with and being involved in the community is a great honor, which I gladly take part in on a regular basis. I have participated in numerous charitable opportunities to include: cooking/planning, as a Sous Chef, for over 1,200 underprivileged families for a Thanksgiving feast, organizing Habitat for Humanity builds for both my Alma Mater and Church, and volunteering at local high schools for strength and conditioning summer camps. I believe that being involved in the community helps to drive the need to build a strong society that we live in and can all benefit from it.
