I became passionate about physical therapy about 15 years ago when my younger brother went through hip surgery. My brother has Down Syndrome and is non-verbal, and I took notice of the patience, kindness, and compassion that the therapist showed him. I went on to pursue my bachelor’s degree in Exercise & Sports Science and becoming Doctor of Physical Therapy from Texas State University.
One of the biggest factors that intrigued me about becoming a Physical Therapist was that we have the opportunity to be lifelong learners, and continually hone our skills to further our understanding and knowledge. As a result, I completed the Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship through the Manual Therapy Institute in 2020.
My favorite aspect of this job is getting to be a part of my patients’ lives and helping them achieve their goals. When not helping patients get better, I really enjoy playing recreational sports like golf, soccer, and softball, spending time with my family, and exercising.
