Why I became a Physical Therapist
I first became interested in human movement and performance while running cross-country in high school. I became obsessed with learning everything that could to help maximize my fitness and recovery. That obsession carried over into college and I knew I wanted to find a career where I could help other fellow runners and athletes reach their full potential. I chose to become a physical therapist to help others overcome their injuries and accomplish their goals.

What do you feel are the most important qualities in a physical therapist?
I believe great communication and active listening skills are crucial for a physical therapist. It is important to understand your patient’s problems, concerns, and goals. Every patient needs a unique plan that is made specifically for their needs.

Personal interests/hobbies
I am an avid philly sports fan and I enjoy doing anything active and outdoors (running, hiking, skiing, camping, and rock climbing). When I am not watching sports or outside, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our pup, Koda.
