Hello! I am from Versailles and was raised on a small hog farm north of town. I spent a lot of my early life going to Winner’s Stockyard in Osgood and Blue Ribbon Feed Mill in Carthagena. I competed in multiple sports in high school including cross country, wrestling, and track. I was also fairly involved in FFA. After high school, I ended up graduating from Ohio State majoring in Athletic Training. For two years after undergrad, I worked as an outreach athletic trainer in the Columbus area through OSU’s hospital system. In 2019, I started graduate school for physical therapy at the University of Dayton. And now, I am here at Performance!
Why you chose to be a physical therapist: I went into the healthcare field involving athletics and loved it. The time commitment as an athletic trainer was challenging and didn’t allow me pursue other interests so I decided that I could do similar things in the field of physical therapy.
