Why I became a Physical Therapist:
I’ve been involved in healthcare since I was 16 years old when I began volunteering at my local volunteer EMS agency. That experience led me to my previous career as an athletic trainer. I loved that career, but I realized there was still so much more to learn. That led me to become a physical therapist so I could continue to advance myself and provide the best possible rehabilitative care to my patients.
What I feel are the most important qualities in a physical therapist
- Being a good active listener in order to understand the circumstances surrounding a patient’s condition and to establish a positive working relationship.
- Being self aware, realizing that every patient is different and that there is no set “right way” that works for everyone.
- PTs need to continue to educate themselves and grow and treat each patient in a way that best suits their recovery.
- A sense of humor, because no one wants to be bored in PT!
