HOW DID YOU DISCOVER THE BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY?
My passion for Physical Therapy came from a personal experience after tearing my ACL in high school while playing basketball. After surgery, and months of rehabilitation, I was finally back to playing again. I loved the idea of motivating others and helping them return to doing what they love.
WHAT KIND OF EDUCATION DID YOU ATTAIN TO BECOME A PHYSICAL THERAPIST?
After high school, I attended Texas Tech University where I obtained my B.S. in Exercise Sports Science. I continued to play basketball, as well as flag football, and volleyball in various intramural leagues. While in Lubbock, I worked as an Out-Patient Physical Therapy Technician at University Medical Center for two years. I later returned to Richardson, Texas and continued working as a Physical Therapy Technician at Southwest Sports and Spine as well as working as a Personal Trainer.
I moved to San Marcos, Texas in 2015 to start my formal Physical Therapy education. I graduated in May 2018 from Texas State University with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. I am currently pursing my Strength and Conditioning Specialist Certification and I have also begun my fellowship training in September of 2020, to become a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists–the highest level of accreditation a Physical Therapist can achieve.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
During my free time, I enjoy playing any type of sport, working out, being outdoors with my dog Tyson, reading, and trying new restaurants.
