Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I knew I wanted to be in healthcare, but I wanted a job that I could build a relationship with patients. I didn't want to only see them once every 6 months or once a year, but I wanted to follow-up with patients on a weekly basis and really get to know them. Physical therapy is the perfect career for that! I get to spend an entire hour with patients at least once a week. Decreasing pain and helping patient's improve their quality of life is very rewarding and life changing!
