Reason for getting into Physical Therapy:

I wanted to find a career that allowed me to use exercise, functional activities, patient education and manual therapy as tools to make a difference in people’s lives and get them back to doing what they love. A career in physical therapy has allowed me to spend quality time with my patients and gain a better understanding of their values, in order to develop a comprehensive plan of care that best fits their needs.

Share a memorable moment about a patient recovery:
A memorable moment I have was working with a patient who had a spinal cord injury and watching him transition from not being able to walk to watching him walk for the first time in 6 months!

Interesting hobbies outside of work:

Photography, hiking, soccer, and street art. I am also a food fanatic and love traveling to new places to try different cuisine!
