As many stories go, I tore my ACL when I was 15 years old playing basketball. I wanted to be a teacher prior to this.  

What do you like most about your work at ARC Physical Therapy+?

The outstanding family atmosphere and continuing to develop employees though encouraged leadership and educational avenues.  

What is one thing you wish everyone knew about the body or physical therapy?

The body can be compared to a vehicle. Over the years and the more miles that are put on a vehicle, the maintenance may change or increase over time. As hard as we may try, it is important to understand that no two vehicles are identical or travel the exact paths.
