What made you decide to enter your field of expertise? My younger brother was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder at a young age and through his school year ages he received clinical services to maximize his typical development, and I saw the effects it made on his life and well being. He was definitely the strongest influence in my career choice. Also, as an athlete I suffered several injuries of my own, and required Physical Therapy services to assist in the rehabilitation process. I was able to experience firsthand PT and the improvements it made in my life as an athlete. I always wanted to help improve the lives of others, and as I was debating between medical school and physical therapy I chose PT as I thoroughly enjoyed improving the lives and well being of others.

Why did you decided to join The Resource Center? I wanted to assist in improving the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities across the lifespan.
