What sparked your interest in physical therapy?
My interest began with anatomy and physiology, and peaked after being able to observe the impact that physical therapists make while at an internship.
What’s the most exciting part of the DPT program?
The most exciting part of the program is the accessibility. The faculty are always available and are passionate about what they do, I have access to the health science building 24/7, and I have access to thousands of books or articles.
What do you hope to do with your degree?
I hope to utilize my degree by continuing to expand my knowledge within the field of physical therapy to better the lives of my patients and members of the community.
What are some of your hobbies?
I love to stay physically active by going to the gym, participating in pick up games of any sport, and by tending to my garden in the summer.
What is your favorite quote?
“Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold.” -Bob Marley
Anything else that you’d like to share (i.e. something unique)
I love to watch Jeopardy. At one time, I used to have over 250+ episodes recorded and would rewatch periodically. I have taken the test to become a contestant the past two years, but have been unsuccessful.
