I took the non-traditional route into physical therapy. I graduated from CMU in 1991 with a BBA in accounting. For two years I worked in public accounting. I spent 8 to 10 hours a day crammed into a 4 X 4 cubicle. One day, I decided that I wasn't going to spend my whole professional career at a sedentary job. During college and my high school years, I was a cross-country and track runner.
I joined the HealthQuest family in 2001 after 5 years of healthcare experience in cardiac rehabilitation, home healthcare and as a private practice physical therapy office manager. Since joining HealthQuest, I served as a physical therapy technician until completion of my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Michigan-Flint in 2002. In 2007, I welcomed the opportunity of opening the 7th HealthQuest Physical Therapy and Wellness Center in Clawson.
