My Story

In high school, I was given the opportunity to volunteer with a school-based physical therapist in my area. She loved her pediatric clients, and the energy she brought to her work made me want to explore physical therapy. Working closely with my pediatric physical therapy professor in graduate school further enhanced my decision to explore pediatrics. I loved all of the experiences I gained during this time working with children with autism, down syndrome and cerebral palsy.  I knew that my career path would lead me to a pediatric setting, and I am so glad that it led me right to Blue Bird.

My Blue Bird Day

My Blue Bird Family allows me to further embrace and explore my passion for pediatrics. I love learning from all of our little ones. They each have a unique perspective on life, and I love providing physical therapy services to these unique little ones. They keep me grounded and on my toes all at the same time. The combination of joy, laughter, and collaboration makes this is a unique and rewarding work environment.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. My future physical therapy goals include gaining additional movement specialty certifications in addition to obtaining my Pediatric Clinical Specialist (PCS) certification.
