I have a big heart for serving others and I wake up excited each day knowing that I am sharing that passion through physical therapy! My love for the industry started in high school, where I experienced multiple injuries participating in track & field. During that experience, I met an amazing therapist who guided me into recovery and inspired me to help individuals around me with similar injuries. After that experience, I focused my educational goals towards becoming a physical therapist, so I too could change lives.
The field of physical therapy will continue to grow as technology advances. Each patient encounter is an opportunity to learn and connect. I have worked in multiple physical therapy settings, which has enabled me to gather knowledge from colleagues, administrative staff, and patients with specialized conditions.
Two important factors I have learned is that each patients’ experience and physical ability are different. Possessing technical and critical thinking skills are vital in assessing the proper care and treatment methods. I take advantage of professional growth by staying humble, remaining open to learning from experienced professionals, and staying informed on new industry practices to be the best Physical Therapist possible for our patients.
Growing up in a culturally rich environment, I take pride in pouring love into the community. I have had the pleasure of participating in community service events during time in the Alamo City. I have had the pleasure of serving various organizations within the community such as: Project Mend, Kinetic Kids, and Rolling Inspirations. I have also had the opportunity to volunteer during the Special Olympics and serve my home church community in Fort Worth, Texas. I plan to continue serving the community by impacting lives through mental and physical health initiatives.
