Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I chose a career in physical therapy because I enjoy helping people of all ages and abilities return to the lives they love to live. Whether the goal is to return to gardening, skiing or playing with grandchildren, I enjoy helping people by making physical therapy fun, personalized and functional! Every day and every patient is different in physical therapy and this keep my job exciting and keeps me on my toes- which I love!
