Project Description

Why did you choose this profession?

I was first introduced to this profession after sustaining a variety of injuries playing soccer. The therapists that I worked with allowed me to safely return to the sport I loved and ultimately inspired me to pursue a career in physical therapy!

What is your best quality as a professional?

My best quality as a professional is my ability to listen to my patients. I enjoy learning about every patient’s interests and what motivates them.

Interests and hobbies?

I enjoy hiking, indoor cycle classes, traveling, and baking!

Did you know?

I played soccer for Nazareth for four years and was the graduate assistant for the team while in grad school.

What do you find most interesting about your job?

I think the most interesting part about physical therapy is there’s always something new to learn. Every patient and presentation is different, which allows for creativity when establishing rehabilitation plans.
