Why did you choose to pursue physical therapy? I chose a career as a physical therapist because I want to help people suffering from movement dysfunctions/ disabilities improve through the wonders of physical therapy. I love the idea of being able to help people regain mobility, live in less pain, and working with people that are willing to work to improve their lives. My interest in healthcare, love for learning, and work ethic are all inspired by my mom’s own journey and struggles as a registered nurse. Exercise, physical fitness, and the human body also inspire me to pursue a career as a physical therapist.
What specialties are you interested in? Acute Care, Neurology, Sports Med, & Orthopedics
What physical therapy school(s) do you hope to attend? Samuel Merritt University, Fresno, Sacramento, Pacific University, St. Augustine, & UCSF.
