About Me

I am currently a student at Bellarmine University in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program.  My graduation date is schedule to be May 2015.  My main interests in the physical therapy field are pediatrics and sports fitness, and I am particularly interested in keeping kids healthy through exercise.  I look forward to learning about a variety of other fields during my time at Bellarmine.  

Before I was accepted at Bellarmine, I began to work at the Home of the Innocents in Louisville, Kentucky with medically fragile and resident children at risk for obesity.  I am currently responsible for an exercise program that focuses on healthy eating and fitness habits with some of the residents from the behavioral units.  Most of my work has been at the therapy pool located at the Home of the Innocents.  Working at the Home has solidified my desire to become a physical therapist.

Prior to my attendance at Bellarmine, I attended the University of Louisville.  While there, I was highly involved in sustainability groups on campus and had the opportunity to work on a research grant on a project involving invasive plants.  I also was involved in the Honors Program and served on the student council.
