Project Description

Why did you choose this profession?

I have been fortunate enough to be active my whole life. Growing up I was always involved in sports, many of my teammates along the way became injured and I watched some suffer some pretty terrible injuries that required a course of physical therapy to be able to return to the game. I always knew I wanted to do something in the medical field and felt physical therapy would be a good fit with my lifestyle and interests.

What is your best quality as a professional?

Every personality test I have ever taken has said that I am an empath. Being able to listen and connect with my patients is definitely helpful in my ability to motivate, sympathize, and help people to reach their goals.

Interests and hobbies?

Exercising/going to the gym


-Wine tasting

-Socializing with friends/family 

-Bringing my dog everywhere!

Did you know?

That I am a striving Adirondack 46-er

-I am obsessed with my rescue pup Quinten

What do you find most compelling about your job?

There are so many different avenues in physical therapy and so many different ways to help my patients. I love that I don’t do the same thing daily and that I get to work with the body as a whole, not just limited to one specific joint or region.

What are some of your Favorites?

Tv Show- Grey’s Anatomy, The Office

-Food- Mexican

-Sports- Syracuse Basketball

What are you doing in the Community?

I am an active fundraiser in the Cystic Fibrosis Community- Every Summer I participate in the Cystic Fibrosis X-Treme Hike which involves fundraising to participate in an all-day hike through the Adirondack High Peaks.
