Where are you from? Where did you graduate high school, college, and physical therapy school?
I am from Beebeetown, Iowa but was born in Omaha. I went to high school at Tri-Center High School in Neola, Iowa, college at Creighton University, then received my doctorate in physical therapy from Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa.
What do you enjoy most about being a physical therapist?
I enjoy being a PT because it allows me to get to know my patients and build a relationship with them while helping them get back to doing things that they enjoy. It is very rewarding!
What’s something interesting about yourself that not many people know?
I enjoy crafting and wood working. I have an Etsy shop where I create hand-made home decor for people to enjoy!
What is your favorite book?
Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
That’s tough as it depends on my mood. Either “No Scrubs” by TLC or “That Don’t Impress Me Much” by Shania Twain.
What makes you laugh the most?
When people do impersonations or accents, and of course, watching The Office!
