Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I still love being a physical therapist after almost 25 years. I've continued to enjoy the variety of patients that come through the door. I've treated a wide variety of cases and patients from 3 month old babies for Torticollis to 96 year old warriors that need help with balance. Each patient is a new challenge, pushing me to do better, to teach and to help them succeed in their rehabilitation needs.
