Why I Became a Physical Therapist

As an athlete growing up I had several sports injuries which eventually introduced me to physical therapy. I had always seen myself in the medical field and loved the idea of getting to incorporate sports and strength training into a future career. I am grateful God has led me to a career that I get to enjoy coming to work.
