Why did you choose the field you are studying in? I chose physical therapy because it is extremely rewarding, and I wanted to be able to help people. When I was growing up, my brother had a PT in the house working with him constantly. I was able to see first-hand just how much of an impact they can make, and since then that’s what I’ve wanted to do.
What is the biggest thing that you learned while on rotation with us? The biggest thing I’ve learned on this rotation is how to treat a patient who has just recently suffered a stroke. That is something that I have not had any experience with in school or any of my other clinical experiences, so it was a big learning experience for me.
Favorite part of working with Therapy Center staff: They make work fun. Everyone is friendly and cordial, so you do not dread going in to work every day.
Hobbies/other areas of interest: Coaching high school soccer, watching and playing sports including football, soccer, baseball, and basketball.
Anything interesting about yourself that you want others to know: I have a twin sister who attends ULL and is majoring in child and family studies.
