I became a Physical Therapist because…

“When I was in pre-med at North Carolina State my brother had an accident and required extensive physical therapy. He told me how much the therapists cared and helped him. This is when I changed my major and transferred to East Carolina University to become a Physical Therapist.”

What’s most exciting about my job?

“I love making a difference in people’s lives, helping them help themselves, and enjoying life. I enjoy being able to work with people of all ages and backgrounds.”


“I am an avid sports enthusiast. I love being with my family and traveling to warm places. I also enjoy movies, music, and dancing. I refuse to give up and I believe that anything is possible.”
