Throughout PT school I felt very lucky to have a variety of clinicals that focused on Neuro Rehab and Outpatient Orthopedics. I also took elective courses in sports PT and pelvic floor PT because I feel very passionate about both of these areas. Because of my experiences and interests, I believe I am able to take a well-rounded approach to evaluating and treating my patients. One of my favorite parts of being a PT is educating my patients about the benefits of physical therapy and about their condition. When I see that ‘lightbulb’ moment of understanding from my patient, I am thrilled! I enjoy learning and have a passion to grow in the areas of manual physical therapy, sports medicine, pelvic floor, and neuro rehab so I am better able to treat my patients and educate them on injury prevention.
I have always been very passionate about mentoring and community service and hope to intertwine these passions with my career as a PT. In my spare time you can find me watching college basketball (Go Louisville!), binging the latest shows on Netflix, or spending time with my friends and family.
