WHY I BECAME A PHYSICAL THERAPIST: I was impressed by the hands-on approach of this medical profession.
HOW I SPEND MY FREE TIME: Summer is for swimming, slalom water skiing, and perennial gardening. Winter is for cross-country skiing. It’s nice to be in a profession that can take care of those occasional tumbles!
