I genuinely enjoy educating people about the full scope of duties and practice of a physical therapist. Most people do not really understand the full extent of our abilities/capabilities bestowed on us in our profession. I love being able to impact people’s lives in a positive way, enough to where they share what they learned in physical therapy with others in their lives.
