On Her Decision to Become a Physical Therapist:
“I did a volunteer course called Adaptive Aquatics and I thought it was amazing how the physical therapists were treating the patients and how they could engage the population functionally.”

On Her Decision to Attend the SHS DPT Program:
“I had heard great things about the program and I wanted to stay close to home, so I appreciated their convenient campus locations.”

On Her Favorite Part of the SHS DPT Program:
“During my clinical internships I would sometimes work with students from other DPT schools and I always felt that I was better prepared than them.” 

On Her Goals:
“I want to specialize in outpatient orthopedics.” 

On Her Best Lesson from the SHS DPT Program:
“I learned to be myself. I am very shy, caring and have a real love of learning, and I learned to be comfortable with that.”
