What made you want to be a PT?

Unlike several of my peers, I did not have an injury and experience physical therapy, instead I saw PT as a means to help the people around me. My grandmother was diagnosed with ALS while I was in high school and I was frustrated with being unable to help. I always had a desire to help people and found the knowledge that I gained through this profession allowed me the opportunity to do just that. I am gra

teful every day for being part of a community that is continuously evolving and transforming in order to aid the people it is serving.

If you could live in any sitcom what would it be?

The Office (NBC)

If you had your own talk show, who would be your first 3 guests?

Joe Rogan, Will Smith, and Stefi Cohen

Why did you choose to come to PTSMC?

Following my student mentorship in the beginning of this year, I found that PTSMC was a great fit for me. The friendly patients and compassion displayed by the staff in the clinic made it feel like home. PTSMC fosters learning for all new graduates and provided support for clinicians throughout their time with the company. I am thankful that I now get to experience this as a clinician instead of a student!

If you could have any super power what would you choose?


If you could travel to anywhere in the world (without taking COVID-19 or money into account) where would it be?

Iceland to see the Northern Lights

What was your favorite movie growing up and has it changed now that you’re an adult?

The Sandlot, thankfully, hasn’t changed much since becoming an adult. I loved the scene on the 4th of July when they play ball under the lights and always hoped I could do that one day.
