I am a very active person, which has greatly influenced my choice to pursue physical therapy for a career. I have been lifting weights and been competing in weightlifting competitions since I was in high-school. Early on I did not perform to the best of my abilities, but through perseverance I was able to mildly exceed and break some personal goals I had set for myself. Testing the limits of the body and witnessing how through hard-work and determination that these boundaries can be broken, is truly a very rewarding experience. It has allowed me to develop a greater appreciation for people who aren't necessarily trying to improve their capabilities beyond fully functioning, but for those who just want to complete their activities of daily living independtly. I have witnessed family members and many other patients drastically improve through their physical therapy sessions. Based on my interests and more importantly my values, physical therapy is the perfect career choice in which I will never regret!
I graduated from Ball State University in 2013 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Exercise Science. I am currently enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Bellarmine University, located in Louisville, Kentucky.
