Campus: Manhattan
Undergraduate: Adelphi
Major: Social Science

On Her Decision to Become a Physical Therapist:
“I was always interested in science and I wanted a career where I could be active." 

On the Most Challenging Part of the Experience:
“Juggling the long hours and family commitments. I got married while I was in school and had a baby.” 

On Her Best Lesson from the SHS DPT Program:
“When you care for patients, you don’t only care about their physical well-being but also their psychological and social aspects as well.” 

On Her Goals:
“I want to go into women’s health as it’s something people still struggle with. People still don’t have a large amount of information about issues that affect women specifically and I want to help educate the community.”
