My passion for physical therapy began in 2014 when my grandmother began therapy for her stroke. I was present for the majority of her physical therapy sessions and became fascinated with just how much physical therapy can do. I have a great connection with geriatric patients for this reason and strive to treat them as if they were my own family.
I became even more familiar with physical therapy after I injured my low back from gymnastics/cheerleading in high school. Through undergoing treatment in physical therapy, I learned the perspective of being a patient and find that it gives me great advantage in my career today. Today, I also greatly enjoy working with soccer athletes. I played soccer since I was 5 years old, and I still continue playing on indoor intermural leagues during my free time.
HealthQuest became the perfect environment for me to further my career after meeting the exceptional therapists here during my rotations as a student. The creativity we put into individualized treatment plans and attention to proper form and mechanics speaks for itself in the multitude of patient success stories.
Being compassionate and dedicated are two qualities that I always aim to display to my patients. To me treating patients with empathy and listening to their concerns is one of the most important duties of being a therapist.
