I fell in love with acute care/geriatrics during my time in PT school. Seeing the reactions on patients' faces when they take their first step after surgery/injury/illness is priceless. My role as an inpatient PT is to provide the starting point for a patient's recovery.

I became interested in physical therapy in high school after having an athletic injury and learning how the human body can be challenged to recover.
