What do you like most about being a PT?

I love being a PT because I have the opportunity to connecting with my patients on a personal level every day. I enjoy watching them get back to everything they like to do and being there to guide them through their recovery.

Something personal:

Outside of PT, I have a passion for both athletics and travel. I played softball at Gettysburg College and am currently an assistant coach at Ursinus College. I was also lucky enough to spend almost three months working at an amputee rehabilitation clinic in London, in addition to spending a semester in college researching the World’s Smallest Penguin on islands off the coast of Sydney, Australia.
