Independence is key in today’s world. I have a unique opportunity to make walking, standing, running and everyday tasks a reality for today’s physically challenged youth. If I could do Pediatric Physical Therapy every day, I would never grow tired of watching the look on a parents face when they realize their once immobile child that can now do daily tasks and have their own independence. My goal is to improve the lives of America’s youth and allow them to have a brighter future and grant them more opportunities in life through physical therapy and gradual muscular and cognitive development. I plan to do so through large and fine muscle exercises, corrective movement exercises, to allowing them to properly sit, stand and walk. As well as, cognitive exercises, to allow the child to build up an understanding of where their body is in space as they begin to move more freely. My academic goals are to finish my Bachelors in Kinesiology and minor in Child Development and then go on to the University of Southern California to get my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. I plan to work closely with financially accessible agencies to reach a larger range of clients who would otherwise never see the care that, over time, could change their life.
