“It is very rewarding to me to be a part of helping Oxford Physical Therapy Centers provide outstanding service to our communities.

What is your favorite vacation you have ever taken? Why?: My favorite trip was a month long mission trip that I went on when I was 16 to Venezuela. It was the first time I had ever been out of the country and I went with many other teenagers. It was an amazing and life changing experience that I will never forget.

My bucket list (three things I want to do before I die): I don’t have a bucket list. All I want before I die is to make sure that I have the best relationships I can have with my family and friends so that they all know how much they mean to me. There aren’t any specific things that I want to accomplish to make me happy.
