I was in and out of PT clinics several times as a young child/adult; certain family members sustained life altering injuries when I was younger which led me to years of sitting and watching physical therapy take place and seeing first-hand how beneficial the field truly is. During my undergrad, I worked as a technician in a few different clinical settings; each was more impressive and promising than the last. I knew instantaneously that Physical Therapy was the field I was meant to be in. I obtained my Bachelor’s in Psychology because I learned very early on that for someone to see true success; he/she has to believe that success is in sight. This is an idea that I strive to ensure all of my patients achieve.
In my spare time, I love playing/watching sports, particularly volleyball, which provides me with a greater understanding of athletes who want to rehab quickly to get back to their sports. I also enjoy advancing my own knowledge-base by taking as many continuing education courses as possible as well as mentoring others with said knowledge and different techniques to use in their futures as treating clinicians. Volunteering is very important to me as well because knowing that I can help make a difference in someone’s life without being asked and seeing the joy on someone’s face is very meaningful.
During my schooling, one of my clinical rotations was at HealthQuest in Clarkston alongside George Carson, PT and co-owner. In my time at this clinic, I was able to see how HealthQuest operated as a primary influence in the community to promote a healthy lifestyle for all who entered the door. This is when I knew I wanted to be a part of this team and hopefully own my own clinic one day to further spread the healthier lifestyle notion.
