Having been introduced to the field of Physical Therapy through personal injury and experience. My career aspirations to becoming part of Physical Therapy Occupation would began shortly after graduating high school. I would go on to obtain a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology in 2013 from University of Texas Pan American, now called UTRGV. I would later receive my Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Degree from South Texas College in May 2019, then shortly after, my PTA License.
I have been a practicing clinician since then and have loved what I do every moment since. I truly do not perceive my career as a job, but more of a passionate hobby. My personal philosophy and passion as a clinician, is to motivate and inspire patients to overcome a momentary set back in their life, through my positivity, my energy, and my commitment to them. Since, I was in the same predicament of being injured and requiring Physical Therapy; I understand how important and valuable Physical Therapy experience, can impact a person to getting better and continue life with a positive outlook. It is that very belief that makes me devoted to ensuring the best quality care and experience for patients is accomplished every day and every visit.
When patients come in, I want them to know that my entire effort and attention is available to them and that together we will go through the challenge of physical rehabilitation and achieve the greatest recovery outcome possible.
