What do you like most about being a Physical Therapist?
I love being able to get to know patients, hear their stories and walk alongside them during their journey through the rehabilitation process. I enjoy the problem-solving aspect of being a therapist and getting to help patients learn to use exercise and body awareness to decrease their pain and improve their mobility and function.
