What are some of your favorite memories?

Dressing up as Lieutenant Dan from Forest Gump for our annual Halloween costume contest, limo rides with the CEO after winning our Halloween competition, a patient bringing her horse to the clinic to show how she is now able to return to riding following therapy, Nicole baking everyone’s birthday cakes, eating breakfast at Bob Evan’s and calling our patients because our power went out, doing a drive by ‘Thank You’ for Admin Day during 2020 for Tya, celebrating Tya’s 50th birthday, surprising our director early in the morning for his 40th birthday with silly string/blow horn/balloons filling his office, wrapping up every single item including Nicole’s desk for her 40th birthday…. I could go on.

What do you say to someone who is starting out in PT?

Ask co-workers about good CEUs and take a variety early on in your career to help hone in on your skills. A few I would recommend would be The McKenzie Method series to help focus treatment for spinal cases, a kinesio taping course, any Gary Gray course, a graston technique course, and total motion release.

What makes ARCPT+ different from other clinics you’ve worked at?

They really value their employees and provide good opportunities to show recognition for our awesome PTs, PTAs, and OTs.

What do you enjoy about working with work comp patients?

I like that we get to see work comp patients through the entirety of their care — versus a private insurance patient, who because of monetary concerns, may stop coming to therapy after a lengthy surgical rehab. With work comp patients, we’re able to see the patient through to the very end and ensure they’re safe to meet the heavy demands of their job. Additionally, we offer an excellent work conditioning program to help achieve these goals.
