HOW IT ALL STARTED:
Growing up, I quickly realized that I wanted my career to be in healthcare. I dedicated much of my time searching for which profession was best for me. During my search, I eventually found myself at a physical therapy clinic. Each time I encountered a Physical Therapist, I always appreciated the compassion, knowledge, and respect they demonstrated for each of their patients. In addition to shadowing Physical Therapists, I also had personal experience going through physical therapy after various sports injuries. I always left physical therapy feeling better and stronger, and I knew that this was the profession I was meant to pursue!
Healthcare is always changing, with new research and discoveries being uncovered every day. Every patient is unique and brings a learning experience with them each visit. I am motivated to continue to grow with the profession, so I can provide the best care possible to patients and have chosen to pursue an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certification to grow and learn as a clinician. Working with amazing colleagues brings the opportunity to learn from different experiences and perspectives. I enjoy coming to work each day and learning something new.
SERVING MY COMMUNITY:
The physical therapy profession offers many opportunities to better serve the community. I enjoy increasing awareness of the bene ts of PT to all populations and helping with various community events. Additionally, I have played tennis my entire life and because of this, I have developed a passion for helping people involved with various sports. I have volunteered with college teams, adults of all ages, and children to help educate and provide assistance with sports training and injury prevention. I plan to continue serving all populations throughout my career.
