BEST PART OF MY WORK: I love teaching people ways to become independent towards eliminating pain, and preventing that pain from returning. It is an added bonus that I get to meet awesome people all day.
WHY I BECAME A PHYSICAL THERAPIST: I knew growing up that I wanted to do something in the medical field that would impact lives. I also love problem solving and working hands on to provide treatment. Physical therapy is the perfect job for me and I love doing it every day.
HOW I SPEND MY FREE TIME: I am an avid sports fan that will watch anything that is competitive, especially Minnesota sports. On the weekends, I love exploring everything the great state of Minnesota has to offer. I spend many of my weekends up at the cabin, regardless of the season.
