Why did you become a nurse practitioner/physician assistant/social worker?

I became a physical therapist because I have always been interested in the human body, how it works, how it gets injured and how to repair it.

What is your personal philosophy around patient care?

"Listen to what your patients have to say, they will tell you what is wrong and what you need to work on."

Other Information

I spend my time outside of work devoting time to my two dogs, Scully and Molly, and my two cats, Tamanojo and Mochi. I also love to read, hike, ride my bicycle and do Ashtanga yoga.
