Getting to Know the Staff at Omaha Physical Therapy Institute

It’s always fun to ask our staff at Omaha Physical Therapy Institute interesting questions about their personalities, likes/dislikes, and goals.  Here are a few of the answers to the questions we have asked recently, mostly pertaining to food, a topic we all LOVE to talk about!

What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

Brent Cordery, PT:  Golden Grahams

Katie Cordery, PT:  If I’m not worried about how much sugar is in it, Lucky Charms!

Sara Palinski, PT:  Raisin Bran Crunch

Marc Hunley, PT:  Cinnamon Life

Ashlie Eckmann, PT:  I don’t like cereal

Jack Matuella, PT:  Reese’s Puffs if indulging.  Raisin Bran Crunch on a normal day.

What’s something you used to eat as a child that totally grosses you out now?

What’s the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

Brent Cordery, PT:  Sun dried Mexican Crickets

Katie Cordery, PT:  Sun dried Mexican Crickets (I was with Brent when we both ate these as an appetizer, hence the same answer)

Lori Koehn, Office Manager:  Rice with cinnamon sugar and milk

Sara Palinski, PT:  I don’t think this is weird, I think it is delicious, but when I got to college, all my friends told me it was weird.  We grew up eating toast with butter and jelly on it with American cheese and hard salami.  Don’t knock it until you try this amazing combination!

Marc Hunley, PT:  Ghost Pepper Beer

Ashlie Eckmann, PT:  Gator Bites

Jack Matuella, PT:  Strawberry Stem but they are actually not bad!

Lori Koehn, Office Manager:  California Turkey (Turkey, Ham, Bacon, Tomatoes, Avocado)

Sara Palinski, PT:   Oh, I don’t discriminate…too many perfect sandwiches out there to choose!

Marc Hunley, PT:   Dipped Italian Beef Sandwich with Peppers

Jack Matuella, PT:   Roast Beef, Turkey, Ham, Chicken, avocado, pesto, provolone, microgreens on brioche bun
