My interest in the physical therapy field began in high school when a very devoted and passionate teacher taught me about the possibilities in Anatomy and Physiology. He always challenged us to learn more than what was expected. This inspired me to pursue a career in the health field. Since I was already very active in sports (softball and volleyball) for most of my life, I was specifically interested in Physical Therapy.
Although I was interested in physical therapy, I was also very interested in nursing, so this is where my education began. Although I enjoyed nursing, I felt it lacked what I wanted to do most so I enrolled in the PTA program and fell in love with all the hands-on techniques and mechanics of the human body. I am excited to further develop my career and knowledge at HealthQuest.
My husband and I have a daughter. We are dog lovers and enjoy spending our free time camping and having cookouts with family and friends. I am originally from Ohio so I am a huge Ohio State Buckeye fan, but come summer-time, I love the Detroit Tigers and enjoy attending games.
