Q: How and why did you end up becoming a PT?
A; I was moderately accident-prone in my 20’s. Therefore, a series of unfortunate accidents led me toward a desire to learn how to take care of my damaged body. After my 3rd sled ride down the mountain, I started taking prerequisites for PT school.
Q: What has been the most challenging aspect of your practice for you personally?
A: The most challenging aspect of my practice is trying to find balance between my work, family, and play. Our business can be quite seasonal, so riding the current throughout those seasons with staffing and the monthly requirements of owning a business can be quite challenging. And there’s always paperwork!
Q: What has been your favorite part? Least favorite?
A: The best part about our business is watching the evolution from injury to return to sport. With the collaboration of other providers in our community, like Wright Training, that evolution is even more profound. It is great to watch an athlete graduate from rehab back to strength training with a team like the trainers of Wright Training is the goal.
Q: What advice would you offer to all the athletes of JH?
A: Know your weaknesses. Know your mechanics. All of us have unique mechanics based on our genetic make-up, our past injuries and sport participation, and our comfort level with our activities, that can dictate a certain level of risk. It is important to train smart and know your body.
