This is my very first ever blog post, so I thought I would start out by telling you about me. 😄
I grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and graduated from Archbishop Ryan High School. I participated in band, where I was I was in the colorguard, as well as chorus and musical theater.
I attended Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA. I received a Bachelors of Science in Health Science with a minor in Biology and a Masters of Physical Therapy. I also continued with my love of theater while at St. Francis.
Because I am the forever student, I decided to go back to school to Temple University for a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. Presently, I am working towards a certificate in Pediatric Physical Therapy from the University of Indianapolis. My goal is to become certified as a Pediatric Clinical Specialist by the American Physical Therapy Association.
My first job was in a Skilled Nursing Facility in NJ. From here I made the jump into pediatrics, where I worked in a school district for 10 years. Then I decided to work a little closer to home and began to focus in on Early Intervention in Philadelphia and Bucks County. This was where I found my niche.
In 2013 I founded my company, PT 4 Kids, P.C., where I began to contract with agencies to provide physical therapy services to children in Bucks County. So many people ask me: "Do you like what you do?" My answer is always: I LOVE what I do!!!!! I love being with people, I love working with kids. And the best part is to see a child accomplish a skill we've been practicing for a long time. That just fulfills me on what I feel called to do.
I've been married to my wonderful husband for almost 8 years now. We have 2 beautiful children. Our daughter is 4 and our son will be a year old next month. They are both firecrackers in each of their own way and they bring me so much joy.
We belong to St. Andrew Catholic Church and the Newtown Athletic Club, which is where you will find us most weekends. We also enjoy getting together with family and friends, going out to eat, and any extra play time with the kids. I love sports, particularly baseball, fantasy football, and March Madness.
I hope this gives you a little insight into me and I look forward building my practice. Feel free to post feedback, questions, or comments here and on future blogs.
