Describe the essence of what you do in your job:

We improve a person’s quality of life. Our aim is to restore a person back to where they are able to participate in the things they enjoy.

What are some of your interests, outside of work?

I love doing anything outdoors, especially being out on a boat. I enjoy running, golfing, working out, playing in softball leagues, and recently I began learning to play tennis. I like music and going to concerts as well. I always enjoy learning new things.

What are some things you believe in? What is your favorite quote or words of wisdom?

“Never let anyone come to you without coming away better and happier.” – Mother Teresa

 What do you like most about working at this organization?

I love the relaxed atmosphere that is present at Thrive, and the ability to provide quality, individualized treatment to my patients. I like that having time to spend with my patients and genuinely listen to their concerns and offer solutions or suggestions for them.

 What do you like most about caring for patients?

I love the relationships that develop between a therapist and a patient. Every person that I meet I learn something from, and my hope is that they are able to take something away from me as well. I meet so many wonderful people, and I am able to grow and learn from interacting with each of them.

 What do you think patients like most about your organization?

What our patients like most is our ability to take the time to listen and genuinely care about their problems. I am able to take the time to explain things and offer up possible options, solutions, or alternatives for them and each of their individual situations. We provide a home-like and relaxing atmosphere that our patients love!

What do you like most about working at this organization?

Opening Thrive Physical Therapy has been my life’s dream! I have always had a passion for Women’s Health Physical Therapy and I had always wanted to open up a place where Women could get the treatment and care that they needed for those problems and conditions that were so personal to them. I know that there are very few Physical Therapist who specialize in what I do, so I felt a need a calling to open Thrive Physical Therapy to be able to practice in the environment that was most suiting for providing these special types of treatments.

What do you like most about caring for patients?

Being able to help a patient with a problem or condition that they felt was just going to be “part of their life” and to improve their quality of life is what makes my job worth every minute. I love the feeling of helping someone overcome a problem or issue that has affected their life and to be part of them returning to doing something that they enjoy again.

What do you think patients like most about your organization?

Patient most like the feeling that they have when they are at our clinic. They like the one on one personalized care and the private, comfortable setting that Thrive Physical Therapy has.
