I have been practicing physical therapy in the inpatient and outpatient setting for the past year and a half. I am a PTA working at IBJI in Bourbonnais at the new clinic off route 45. As a new grad, I am learning new skills and techniques every day! As much as I loved working with patients in the hospital setting, I’ve grown to have more interest in the outpatient setting. Previously before becoming a PTA, I worked as a clinical assistant for our company’s orthopedic doctors office for three years, which is what initially sparked my interest into becoming a PTA.
I have grown up in the Bourbonnais, Illinois area. Went to high school at BBCHS and then got my PTA degree at Kankakee Community College. I am recently married and together, we have a 3 year old boy named Mason, and another on the way! When I’m not busy working or chasing after my toddler, I like to relax… catch up on my favorite TV shows, watch a movie, or read a book! My favorite season is summer, so any chance that I get to be in water or go to the beach, I’m taking it!
