PATH TO PT
If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. My interest in becoming a physical therapist started when I was young. I was always fascinated in how the human body worked and performed through sports, science and anatomy classes, and my own physical therapy after injury in sports. I knew that I needed a career that I could continue this interest and help others get back to their passions in life. Life is too short to live in pain and miss out on things you enjoy; and I love that I can help people get back to whatever that may be for them!
TEACHER AND STUDENT
I was fully dedicated to school and learning and have always strived to be the best in everything I attempted. That combination got me to where I am today, a physical therapist. I continue to feel that every day there is something for me to learn. I gain knowledge from experiences, conversations with patients, formal education, and observation. Being a teacher for all my patients and relaying vital information to help them understand their condition is as important as motivating them to get better. Both are equally important for successful outcomes.
I enjoy any outdoor activity and nearly all sporting events, and will probably talk your ear off about each of them. I find it fun to cook and appreciate the conversations over good food with my husband, family and friends. I have participated in numerous running events for cancer awareness and research, and volunteered with various athletic events around the city. Through these events and experiences, I hope to encourage people in a direction of a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle. I look forward to always seeking more opportunities to learn and to give back to the city and community where I live and work.
