On being part of the MOI team
I chose to work for MOI after graduating because I love the staff. Everyone was so helpful when I was a student doing my clinicals here. They always take time out of their schedules to answer my questions or talk with me about a patient. And I love the way they do things at MOI. The doctors are all very accessible, and everyone collaborates in the best interest of the patient. It’s a very supportive environment.
On making a difference
I chose to become a physical therapist because I enjoy working with people. This job allows me to interact with patients on both a professional and a personal level, because I get to know them as individuals over the course of their therapy. I have the opportunity to really make a difference in their lives.
