My interest in physical therapy began in high school with exposure to a physical therapist assisting with the basketball team in the treatment of athletic injuries. This was coupled at the time with an enjoyment for sciences, particularly anatomy. From these experiences, I decided to follow a physical therapist for the day at a local hospital as part of a professional shadowing opportunity. I was able to identify the rewarding nature of physical therapy during this experience, allowing me to decide on this career choice rather easily.
These past experiences, and all that have occurred to this point in my career, have shaped my understanding and development within the profession of physical therapy a tremendous amount. There are so many areas a physical therapist can be a part of, but I developed a great interest level with the practice of manual therapy during my college education learning from influential professors. Manual therapy is one area which allows for an exploration for the causes of a problem, following and more importantly, respecting the intricate, endless connections our anatomy has in relation to health and function. There is always something more to learn and each finding is just as exciting as the previous one.
I was born and raised in Connecticut, graduating from Quinnipiac University in 2010 with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy, beginning my career within the outpatient private practice setting. One year after Quinnipiac, I decided to pursue a Doctor of Science in Physical Therapy degree from Texas Tech University, earning this in 2018.
Outside the clinic, I enjoy outdoor activities, sports and taking road trips to experience new places.
