"Growing up, I had always been interested in the human body and its physiology, which led me to pursue a degree in health sciences in college. As I continued to learn about physical therapy and the wonders exercise does to your body, I gained a deeper appreciation for the vital role that physical therapists play in helping patients regain mobility, manage pain, and improve their overall quality of life. I decided I wanted to be part of a patients journey to guide them in their recovery from injuries and illnesses, and enable them to live their lives to their fullest extent possible. All my life I have had a passion for sports, physical activity, and overall health, so choosing physical therapy as my profession was a natural fit. What I find most inspiring in my career is the impact that physical therapy can have on a patient's life, and being able to witness a patient progress from a low functional level to them regaining their independence and quality of life visit by visit is truly rewarding."
