Q: What makes you excited to jump out of bed and head to work each day?
I get excited about the opportunity to develop a relationship with each patient and implement personalized treatments to help each one reach personal goals. I like the variety of patients I get to work with each day.
Q: What led to your decision to work at ProActive Physical Therapy?
While growing up in Sioux Center, I had always admired ProActive’s reputation of investing in people and the community as a whole. ProActive Physical Therapy is active in the community and the schools and I am excited to be part of that. I like the variety of each day and the opportunity to treat a wide range of patients from young athletes to geriatric patients.
Q: What is one thing you’d like every patient to walk away with from their experience at ProActive Physical Therapy?
I would like all patients to walk away knowing they were heard and cared for, and realizing that we are truly invested in their health.
