Health and Wellness


I have a passion for helping people live a healthy, and full lifestyle. This includes the ability to function on a regular basis without encountering any pain. I am interested in the Physical Therapy Assistant field and would like to get certified in the future, so that I would be able to conduct daily exercises to patients in order help them live full and happy life. So far, I have completed all classes (pre-requisites) required to apply for the program in the fall of 2020 this year, however I would like to advance professionally and personally in the medical field. I am able to do this by observing medical clinics, taking my grandma on regular PT visits, and reviewing the medical terminology learned few years ago. It is my passion to provide the best customer, or patient service possible because everyone deserves to live a full, healthy lifestyle!
