I graduated as a PTA from Harper College in December of 2020 and have been working in the physical therapy field since March of 2021. I originally graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Business Administration, but soon after realized the business field was not where I wanted to be. After some reflection I realized I really wanted to go into physical therapy due to my love of exercise and having experienced 2 bouts of physical therapy for myself (ACL repair in each knee). I was really amazed at how simple exercises along with other techniques and a little patience were able to get me back to doing the things I love. I felt it was a cool way to help people with things that I’m passionate about so I went back to school.

In my free time I enjoy being outside, running, biking, hiking, while also relaxing and reading a book or getting together with my friends. I also have continued to practice what I preach with working out and stretching by utilizing the things I have learned. I look forward to continuing to grow and learn more ways I can help other people achieve their physical therapy goals so they can continue to do the tasks and activities they love.
