Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I chose to become a physical therapist because I wanted a career in healthcare that allowed me to spend more than 8 minutes with each person. I continue to want to get to know each person individually in effort to provide patient specific strategies to reduce pain and improve function, and to assist them in returning to the things that they enjoy.
