Why did you become a Physical Therapy Assistant?

I choose to pursue a career in Physical Therapy because I love to work with people. It is incredibly rewarding to be an instrumental part in assisting people return to the life they love. Whether it be returning to the mountains, sports, gardening, or independence at home. I also enjoy meeting new people and having the opportunity to build a relationship with them through their course of healing.
