Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I've always been fascinated with how the body works and with people in general. I was looking for a career that was able to combine wellness and human interaction, and I kind of stumbled upon physical therapy. But, when I looked in to the field further, I found out that it was everything I was looking for. As a teenager, I had several bad experiences with physical therapy. And after seeing their lack of compassion and interest towards helping a young person, it drove my desire to do better even more.
