Biography:
Growing up I was always an athlete, playing just about every sport I could. In high school, I was injured playing soccer and ended up in physical therapy at HealthQuest as a patient of Steve Rabaut’s. I had already known I wanted to have a career in the health field, but my experience at HealthQuest helped me realize PT was the right path for me.
I went on to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I spent one year after graduation working as an ACSM certified personal trainer and building my resume. I then earned my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During my schooling at Pitt, I learned I had a passion for pediatric orthopedics and had the unique opportunity to spend a year as an intern at The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in both the acute care and outpatient settings.
After graduation, I headed back to Michigan and sent my resume to HealthQuest first thing. I was lucky enough to be hired by Steve and Brian in Clawson. I am very excited to be part of the HealthQuest team and to have the opportunity to provide patients with the same positive experience I received years ago.
