What do you like most about being a Physical Therapist?
Tess became a physical therapist because she has always been drawn to helping others. Through volunteer experiences early in her college career, she really appreciated the way in which physical therapists helped educate and empower patients to take back control over their ailments and learn how to heal themselves through movement. Her favorite part about working as a PT is the genuine and unique relationships she builds with each and every patient, time spent learning about their hobbies and goals, and the ability to develop creative treatment plans tailored to their individual needs.
