Deciding to choose PT as a career was a difficult choice for me. Although I had always thought about a career in PT, I wanted to try other things. I tried everything from joining the military to looking into police or firefighter training. Every time I chose a new career path it was in public service. One day as I realized I wasn’t able to be a nurse due to my dislike of seeing blood and needles I remembered my desire to try PT again. Instead of shying away again I applied to Macomb Community College for the Physical Therapist Assistant program and did some volunteer work at my local PT clinic to make sure. Within an hour of seeing everything in the clinic I was in love and knew I made the right choice.
I graduated from Macomb in the spring of 2016 and chose to work for HealthQuest due to the professionalism and care every person I encountered showed. Every employee in this company showed they wanted to better the profession and their patients and that is something that will always stick with me.
I have been married since 2014 and enjoy spending time with my wife at the rink playing ice hockey or coaching her team. We have a son who I strive to give everything I can in life, teaching him the respect and care for others I was taught growing up.
I look forward to a long and rewarding career making everything I can of myself within HeathQuest.
