Out Of The Ashes, We Rise!

Now that many of you know the story as to why I became a physical therapist, let me tell you a story about what drove me to start my own practice.

I had witnessed first hand how physical therapy can change the lives of so many people. It was amazing! Even more exciting was that I was finally able to be a part of this profession! I went through three years of grad school in order to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy, and I was so excited about how many lives I was going to impact. Look out world...here I come!!!

Through my experiences in physical therapy school, I fell in love with helping youth athletes. I was determined to position myself to be able to work in that field. This was going to be my way of continuing on with sports since my playing days were long behind me...the freshman fifteen was real, and I never hit that elusive growth spurt...

That was it! As a newly minted doctor of physical therapy, I was going to help youth athletes return to playing sports. Why is this so...

How A Stroke Shaped My Life

Let me tell you a story of what transpired in my life to drive me to become a physical therapist. 
 
Honestly, I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. In college, I changed my major as frequently as I changed clothes, and I hated wearing the same outfit twice in the same month! I never really found anything that resonated with me. I never felt satisfied that I would be able to make an impact with each choice that I made. Eventually I settled for business management and started working for an insurance agency. I was settling for what my career had become. I didn’t hate it, but I certainly didn’t love it. Then tragedy struck...
