What I like best about my job:

I love having the opportunity to work with people on a daily basis and help to improve their quality of life. It is so rewarding to see someone return to the activities they enjoy without pain. I also enjoy helping middle school, high school and college athletes recover from injuries and return to playing. It is very fulfilling to see the athletes back out on the court or field after sustaining injuries.

What I like best about my job:
