Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
When I was 15 I injured my knee while I was playing baseball and had to go to physical therapy. It turned out to be a wonderful experience and I was able to return to all of my recreation activities. At the time, I was pondering what I wanted to do for a career path and my physical therapy experience made the decision for me. I realized how enjoyable it was to help people achieve their goals and return to their their daily and recreational activities. After nearly 18 years of practicing, I can truly say I love my job and being able to meet and help people.
