Project Description

Why did you choose this profession?

I initially chose physical therapy school when I was a senior in high school because my mother told me to. Haha! She knows me pretty well and I knew I liked science and healthcare without the pressure and risks of other medical professions. I became passionate about pelvic health after the birth of my 4th child, learning about how beneficial PT can be for pelvic health and how poorly it was utilized and understood.

What is your best quality as a professional?

I’m a very personable person. I truly enjoy getting to know someone, listening to their story, figuring out what motivates them and cheering them on.

Interests and hobbies?

I love photography. I had a professional photography business for about 4 years and still LOVE to take pictures. I enjoy playing with my kids, being outside, eating yummy food and coffee!

Did you know?

I have 4 children that I am obsessed with! I love my tiny tribe and hate flying in airplanes!

What are some of your Favorites?

I enjoy baking shows, though I don’t get to watch TV too often. Someone in the house is usually screaming Go Bills! So by proximity, I have to support that! I love coffee and wine 🙂

What are you doing in the Community?

I’m the Girl Scout Leader for my daughter’s Daisey/Brownie troop! 🙂
