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 plan to start my Fellowship in Manual Therapy with the Manual Therapy Institute in January of 2019.
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.
