My Story

I chose physical therapy because it is a holistic approach to helping the human body function at its highest potential and I have experienced the benefits of movement throughout my life. Most importantly, I chose becoming a PT over a physician because of the patient interaction and the ability to have an impact on our patients’ lives in a way that no other healthcare professional experiences. I absolutely love the quality time I get to spend with my patients/families and the bond that forms between us! We get to know our patients very well and I believe that helps us care for them and foster their growth in the most effective way!

My Blue Bird Day

My experience with BBD so far has been great. Everyone has been really kind and welcoming from the very beginning and I knew immediately that it would be a great fit for me. I am glad to know BBD values and prioritizes patient care of productivity and that the care provided is multi-disciplinary. I am also very impressed and appreciative of the formal and thorough onboarding process, which I find is pretty rare within the therapy world.

My Advocacy

As far as PT, I am a huge advocate for autonomy as a profession and always encourage my family/friends to consult a therapist when it comes to their child’s development. Outside of PT, I support many organizations that fight injustices and support equality for all of humanity 🙂

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I hope that as I grow as a therapist, I am able to take on more responsibilities and assume a leadership role in order to guide other PTs in their professional journey.
