On Choosing to Become a Physical therapist…
Growing up, I wanted a career in the medical field so I could help others. My cousin suffered a spinal cord injury while playing high school football, and that’s when I was exposed to physical therapy for the first time. His experience inspired me to pursue a career in PT.
The Best Part of My Job…
I love the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. Likewise, I’m thankful for the patients who make a difference in mine. I enjoy that my job allows me to work with people on a professional and personal level everyday.
Joining the Team at MOI…
I am excited to be part of the MOI team, including fellow therapists, physicians, and staff. The environment in our clinics is encouraging and supportive for providers and patients. The collaborative approach at MOI is what enables us to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
