Physical Therapist Assistant, TEAM PTA

" As a physical therapist assistant, I enjoy walking along side my patients as they progress toward recovery. The journey of rehabilitation is the most functional when the therapist and patient are actively involved in the entire treatment experience. I believe that through my education, experience, encouragement and motivation, I can make a positive change in the lives of others. It also helps that I really enjoy what I do, too. "

What is your favorite vacation you have ever taken? Why?: My most favorite vacation would have to be my honeymoon to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. I remember every day of the vacation waking up to an amazing view of the Caribbean Ocean and going out and exploring the sights with my new wife. This also was the first trip that either of us had without a family member along, so it was nice to be free to do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted.
