About Me

I am currently a Doctor of Physical Therapy student at Bellarmine University. As a non-traditional student, I had the opportunity to experience different careers before deciding to pursue physical therapy. My experiences in the military and as a project manager in various industries including healthcare and healthcare IT, as well as personal life events have all guided me to the knowledge that my ideal career is in physical therapy.

I am drawn to neurology, working with amputees, and assisting veterans. I also hope to become deeply involved in advocacy on both a state and federal level. My experience with the healthcare industry, professionally and personally, has highlighted the need for involvement in changing legislation.
