Why I became a physical therapist:

I love being a physical therapist because it affords me the opportunity to get to know my patients on a personal level, while helping them improve their overall quality of life. I feel lucky that I get to encourage others on their journey towards decreased pain and improved function as they get back to the activities they enjoy! And honestly, so many of my patients have as much of a positive impact on me as I do on them – these relationships enrich my life immensely! I feel blessed to be in this field and working for a great company like TherapySouth.
