Professional Life: Toward the end of my last internship, I confided in the CI (Clinical Instructor) my ideal clinic to work in. She was a former PTA at RFPT who left for an aquatics focus. I sent over my resume. During this time, I was studying for my licensing test and very stressed. I got an interview and as soon as my license was approved, I started that day. Little did I know this is the perfect fit. Everything fell into place and could not have lined up more perfectly. Completed my PTA degree at Green River Community College.

Personal Life: Born and raised in Washington state besides a decade in Arizona. I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and plan to stay. I graduated with my Associates - emphasis on Arts degree from Highline College in 2011 and proceeded to find a career that fit. After a year of saving up, I found my niche and enrolled into the PTA program at GRCC. I am dedicated to my career and thirst for knowledge of the human body. In my free time, I draw with different medias to keep my skills fresh and indoor rock climbing.
