Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I became a physical therapist after learning about the profession when I experienced a knee injury that required rehab but no other medical interventions such as surgery. I was drawn to helping people in a unique way, where as healthcare professionals we get to spend a lot of time with our patients, getting to know them and seeing them through their recovery. Later, after the birth of my first son, I was meeting other first-time mothers who accepted symptoms as normal that are common, but not things they have to live with, such as peeing their pants with sneezing, experiencing painful sexual intercourse, and being unable to return to previous activity levels. I kept telling them they do not have to live like that, and I found there were not many pelvic health therapists available to help them. I have greatly enjoyed combining my orthopedic and pelvic health experiences to improve women’s health and function before, during, and after pregnancy.
