PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

B.S. Applied Biotechnology – University of Georgia 2015 Doctorate of Physical Therapy – Mercer University 2020 “I chose physical therapy as a profession for two reasons: I find the body an amazing and intricate creation, and no matter the pathology someone presents with, I believe the healing experience is different for each individual. I love being able to share what I know, and problem solve together with each and every one of my patients. I also genuinely enjoy being able to join in with someone on their journey to achieving all of their functional goals. Whether your goal is being able to play with your children without pain or being able to compete at high level athletics, you will always present with something worthy of our time and attention as therapists.”
