“My approach when treating any patient is to assess the whole person, rather than just their diagnosis. I feel it is important to get a big picture of a person’s overall perception of their wellbeing, emotional and physical state, as well as their lifestyle and goals. It is my goal in treating in each person to return them, as best possible, to the activities they enjoy doing and reach their best functional potential to move through their daily life.”
In my 4 ½ years of experience, I have worked in a variety of settings to include home health pediatrics, skilled nursing, and outpatient orthopedics.

I BECAME A PHYSICAL THERAPY ASSISTANT…
“I took anatomy and physiology with a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher while in high school which sparked my interest in the human body and how the body works. From then on, I knew I wanted to have a career in the health care field. With my love of working with people, living an active lifestyle, and educating others on health and fitness, being a PTA is the perfect job for me!”
WHAT’S MOST EXCITING ABOUT MY JOB?
“There are so many things about the world of Physical Therapy that are exciting and interesting! I feel one of the best things about my job is the relationships we get to build with our patients, helping them to reach their goals, and to move on with their lives feeling better than they did when they first started Physical Therapy.
I am an active person who you will rarely find not on the go. I love being outside running, biking, hiking, playing at the lake and working in the yard. I love to cook, drink wine and creating home improvement projects.
