Professional background leading to career in health and wellness: 

When I was in high school I was leaning toward a career in healthcare, and my Mother encouraged me to volunteer at the hospital, and I loved it. I then acquired a job babysitting the children of a Physical Therapist. I read his Physical Therapy journals with fascination, and he allowed me to shadow him in his clinic. I knew then that Physical Therapy was the career for me. More than 30 years later, I cannot imagine doing anything else!

What reasons you are passionate about helping others: 

I love people!!!….. I have always believed that my purpose on Earth is to serve and help people. Being a Physical Therapist and helping others obtain wellness and independence is a blessing and an adventure that brings me great joy.

What do you enjoy in your free time:

I love to be outdoors, doing anything adventurous with my favorite people! But… I also love just sitting on the beach for hours with a good book and those same favorite people, listening to the pounding surf… And not leaving until after sunset.
