Why I am a Physical/Occupational Therapist: I chose to become a PT because the medical field was of interest to me and I worked as an aide for 1 year which solidified it was the career for me. I love my job because every person presents differently and therefore, treatment is individualized. I enjoy the one on one personal interaction I have with my patients that leads to improving their quality of life.
Continuing Education Commitment: I am currently studying Vestibular rehab and continue to improve my manual skills through various courses I attend throughout the year.
Personal Interests: I love the mountains and the water. I ski in the winter, hike in the summer, camp as much as possible and attend concerts when possible.
