My Personal Story
I am originally from a small town in upstate New York where I grew up playing soccer and spending most of my time outdoors, which would eventually manifest into a love of hiking during my undergraduate and graduate careers. Several factors played a role in my decision to consider and ultimately commit to physical therapy as a career path. My inclinations toward problem solving, fitness and exercise, and serving others initially pointed me in that direction. Practical experience in an outpatient clinic while receiving mentorship from a wise PT cemented it. It was not until years later while struggling with my own physical challenges, did physical therapy begin to reveal itself to me on an entirely different level. It continues to provide opportunities for me to grow, both as a clinician and a person, and has played a significant role in shaping me into who I am today.
