I became a Physical Therapist because...

"I received physical therapy treatment for an injury sustained while playing sports in college. I like the fact that the Physical Therapist didn't have to wear a suit or 'shuffle papers' all day."

What is most exciting about my job?

"I enjoy the challenge of treating patients who have not had success with physical therapy in the past. I also enjoy giving chronic patients hope by allowing them to experience their own improvement."


"I enjoy playing with my 3 kids, hiking, camping, swimming, and yard work."
