1. How many years have you been practicing Physical Therapy?
This is my first year practicing Physical Therapy. I graduated this May from Northeastern University. I completed my clinical rotation with SCPT, so I’ve been here a while.

2. Why did you choose to become a Physical Therapist?
I chose to become a PT, like many others, because I wanted to help people rehab from injuries to get their lives back to how they want to live them. I really love to see the transformation from pain and limitations back to prior level of function.
